Greensboro News & Record // After sitting down at the F.W. Woolworth’s lunch counter on February 1, 1960, David Richmond (left to right), Franklin McCain, Ezell Blair, and Joseph McNeil walked out and had their photo taken by Jack Moebes, a Greensboro Daily News and Greensboro Record photographer. The picture now hangs in the International Civil Rights Center and Museum.
This year, we’ll wave flags in Wilmington and Waynesville, fire up the grill in Fayetteville and Fuquay-Varina. Most of all, we’ll reflect on the earliest days of our country and the true meaning of Independence Day.
