Students Protest Segregation

On July 26, 1963, student protesters on Main Street in Farmville stage a sit-in outside the College Shoppe restaurant, which refused to serve black patrons. Whites inside the restaurant look out the window as police approach the demonstrators. This protest was part of an organized local campaign against racial discrimination that took place in the summer of 1963.
