On This Day..Feb. 1, 1960 Four Freshmen STOPPED jimCrow Racism and STARTED Civil Rights Act USA (367 hits)

Racial segregation was still legal in the United States on February 1, 1960,

Courageous African American Freshman college students Jibreel Khazan,

Franklin E. McCain, Joseph A. McNeil, and David L. Richmond at the North

Carolina Agricultural and Technical College when they began their protest.

They sat down at the Woolworth counter in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Asking for service at this “whites only” counter, their request was refused.

This protest led to the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which finally

outlawed racial segregation in public accommodations.

The manager of the Woolworth’s store requested that they leave the premises. After leaving

the store, the students told campus leaders at Agricultural and Technical what had happened.

The next morning twenty-nine neatly dressed male and female North Carolina Agricultural

and Technical students sat at the Woolworth’s lunch counter.

Soon crowds of students were mobbing local lunch counters.

As the protests grew, opposition grew vociferous. Crowds of white men began appearing at

lunch counters to harass the protesters, often by spitting, uttering abusive language, and

throwing eggs. In one case, a protester’s coat was set on fire, and the assailant was arrested.

...As an avid Woolworth patron in the North...I thank you for YOUR COURAGE

YOU made it possible in 1964 For President Johnson to SIGN the CIVIL RIGHTS act...

For all the youngsters hearing this ...

..In those DAYS, we did not have Malls...or a lot of fast food joints...l

Woolworth or Kresge's...was a place downtown MOST USA cities where you could shop till you

dropped for clothes, home items, everything and then on your way out you could get a burger,

Senior Marine Corps leader of 47k-strong force at Camp Pendleton FIRED

Alyssa Guzman For Dailymail.Com - Yesterday 4:30 PM

ACamp Pendleton Senior Marine Corps leader, who led a team of 47,000,

was let go because of officials' 'loss of trust' in his abilities to perform the job.

Sgt. Major Terrance Whitcomb was relieved of his duties as a senior enlisted leader of the

1st Marine Expeditionary Force at Camp Pendleton in California.. by Lieutenant General George Smith.

...departure 'due to loss of trust and confidence in his abilities to fulfill his assigned duties.'

It is unclear what Whitcomb's duties included or what he did to create mistrust.

'Loss of trust and confidence' can include a wide variety of causes.

Whitcomb..a 'distinguished graduate' of Class 1957 of the Navy Senior Enlisted Academy,

was in charge of a quarter of the Marine Corps' active duty service.

He joined the Marines in 1993 and assumed his current rank as Sergeant Major in November

2011,serving both at Camp Pendleton and in the United Arabs Emirates.

He took over as Sergeant Major of the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force in September 2021.

First Marine Expeditionary Force is the largest force in the Marine Corps and has a long history

of combat deployment. It is based at Camp Pendleton and Marine Corps Air Station

Miramar-based 3rd Marine Air Wing. It includes the West Coast air-ground task force and is

made up of Marines and sailors.

He also served as a drill instructor, an administrative chief and a personnel clerk throughout

his 29-year career, and he was deployed to serve in Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2005 and 2007.

He was deployed as part of the Special Purpose Marine Air Ground Task Force to the Middle East between 2016 and 2018.

Whitcomb won many awards during his 29-year career, including the Meritorious Service Medal

- the third most prestigious award given by the Department of Defense
