If you remember anything about the groovy era, you must surely remember the civil rights movement. The civil rights movement began with racial equality in mind and eventually culminated into an “animal” all its own.

Sit-ins were a vehicle that was an intentional and peaceful way to shed light on social injustices in the hopes of bringing about change.
