GREENSBORO, N.C. — On Friday, Feb. 1, North Carolina A&T State University is celebrating the 53rd anniversary of the Greensboro sit-ins — a day in 1960 when four N.C. A&T freshmen went downtown to sit at the whites-only lunch counter at Woolworth’s. 

The school is celebrating the anniversary with a series of events, beginning with a breakfast at 6 a.m. in the Alumni-Foundation Event Center. 

The three surviving members of the A&T four will deliver remarks along with the family of the fourth, deceased member.
