The Chapel Hill 9 Story

On Sunday, February 28, 1960, nine young men from Chapel Hill's all-black Lincoln High School sat at a booth in the Colonial Drug Store and sought the same service that was given to white customers. Their courageous step sparked a decade of direct-action civil rights demonstrations in Chapel Hill. This is their story.

Narrated by Dr. Reginald Hildebrand, Danita Mason-Hogans, and Jerry Neville as Harold Foster.
