The A&T Four: A Closer Look

New for 2016, we have digitized a new collection of materials that explore the history and legacy of the A&T Four.

On February 1st, 1960 in Greensboro, North Carolina, four A&T freshmen students, Ezell Blair, Jr. (Jibreel Khazan), Franklin McCain, Joseph McNeil and David Richmond walked downtown and "sat - in" at the whites–only lunch counter at F.W. Woolworth's store. They refused to leave when denied service and stayed until the store closed. Their brave actions led to the desegregation of the Woolworth's lunch counter in July 1960 and made a signifigant impact on other events in civil rights history.

This collection, A&T Four: A Closer Look, contains photographs, newspaper clippings, publication excerpts, and other documents from the University Archives that tell a story of the A&T Four as students, their legacy, and the many ways they are honored throughout the community.

North Carolina Runaway Slave Advertisements, 1751-1840

The North Carolina Runaway Slave Advertisements project provides online access to all known runaway slave advertisements (more than 2300 items) published in North Carolina newspapers from 1751 to 1840. These brief ads provide a glimpse into the social, economic, and cultural world of the American slave system and the specific experience within North Carolina. Working from microfilmed copies of these rare publications, the project team scanned the ads to provide digital images, create full-text transcripts and descriptive metadata, and develop a searchable database. The NCRSA website includes digital scans of the ads, contextual essays to address their historical research value, full text transcripts, an annotated bibliography to aid researchers, and a searchable database.
