Description Black and white photograph of African American students during the Chattanooga sit-ins of February 1960.

This was from the first day of protests when students filled the seats of Woolworth's lunch counter. Five female African American students sat at the counter in the foreground while three or four males sit in the background. A few of the girls smile.

The name "Wilson" is written on the back referring to the photographer, likely Delmont Wilson of the Chattanooga News-Free Press.
