Tuesday Photos from Freedom Ride

Today our group traveled to Greensboro to visit the International Civil Rights Museum.  We were blessed to have a number of individuals who had fought so hard for Civil Rights join us for the day. Joseph McNeil, one of the four AT&T students to sit at the Woolworth counters as an act of civil disobedience. Lewis Brandon joined the protest the second day along with many other students, even girls from Bennett College.

I had the honor to meet an icon Mr Joseph McNeil one of the four members who started the sit inns at f.w Woolworth in North Carolina. Meeting Mr. McNeil in person was an amazing experience, hearing his story really touched me and inspired me.
