      ****

      When the walls of segregation toppled: fifty years since the civil
      rights sit-ins

      FEBRUARY 1, 1960--When four students from A&T College sat down at a
      lunch counter in Greensboro, North Carolina, they had no idea that
      their action would initiate the largest mass movement for civil rights
      in the twentieth century. The sit-in movement kicked off a wave of
      civil rights actions that led to the destruction of Jim Crow
      segregation. In doing so, young people challenged not only white
      racists, but also established civil rights leaders and organizations.

      SPEAKER: BRIAN JONES is a teacher, actor, and activist. He is a
      columnist for SocialistWorker.org and is the author of a number of
      articles on the Civil Rights Movement, including:

      NEW: The sit-ins that ignited the movement, 50 years ago today
