This week, Chapel Hill remembered Martin Luther King and his efforts that re-shaped the south in the 1950s and 60s. When students from the former Lincoln High School staged a sit-in at a whites-only drugstore in Chapel Hill, the town gained national recognition. As a result, King came to Chapel Hill and gave a talk at UNC.
Avery Kleinman spoke to one professor who remembers King’s visit.
