The International Civil Rights Center & Museum (ICRCM), located in Greensboro, N.C., is an archival center, collecting museum and teaching facility devoted to the international struggle for civil and human rights. This national landmark and national site of conscience celebrates the nonviolent protests of the 1960 Greensboro sit-ins that served as a catalyst in the civil rights movement. Our vision is to memorialize the courageous stand of the Greensboro Four as they launched, for posterity, the sit-in movement Feb. 1, 1960. We hope that the ICRCM, with its focus on the sit-in activities at the F.W. Woolworth lunch counter in Greensboro in 1960, will inspire the vigilance and fortify the spirit of all oppressed people to step forward in the ongoing struggle for human freedom.

We had an opportunity to attend the civil rights museum while in town for a competition with the Elks and New Student Orientation at NC A&T. We truly enjoyed the tour and Elijah did an excellent job taking us on a trip through time.

I appreciate that someone worked to preserve this history by putting the museum in the actual store where the sit-ins happened. The lunch counter is preserved, and the dorm furniture of the era when the four young men were students is there, too. Be sure...More

Since we are Greensboro residents and had wanted to visit for quite some time my wife and I took the tour this afternoon. It was fantastic, largely due to our wonderful and highly engaging tour guide LT. Very educational, relevant and powerful.
