The International Civil Rights Center and Museum

The New York Times has an informative article on the International Civil Rights Center and Museum in Greensboro, North Carolina. The museum opened on February 1, 2010 and is housed in the former Woolworth's building where the original Greensboro lunch counter sit-ins took place. The museum is an archival center and teaching facility dedicated to civil and human rights. Its website has some great information including a time-line of of the Greensboro sit-ins and a biographical page detailing the people who participated in the first lunch counter sit-in.
