Black and white photograph of the Chattanooga sit-ins at a downtown department store lunch counter, in February 1960.
On the first day of protests, a group of young African-American Howard High-school students sat at a downtown department store lunch counter. There was a sign on the counter indicating that it had been closed down.
The name "Wilson" is written on the back referring to the photographer, likely Delmont Wilson of the Chattanooga News-Free Press.
