Woolworth Lunch Counter Sit-in - Jackson, Mississippi

Woolworth Lunch Counter Sit-in - Jackson, Mississippi

This is the Woolworth lunch counter in Jackson, Mississippi.  It was the scene of a "sit-in" when students protested the store's "whites-only" policy for the lunch counter.

In this photo we see John Salter (a Native-America/Scottish professor now known as Hunter Bear Gray), Joan Trumpauer (later known as Joan Mulholland, one of two white students at Tougaloo College) and Anne Moody (a Tougaloo student who later wrote a book about growing up in Mississippi).
