FEBRUARY ONE tells the compelling story of four students from North Carolina A&T University who initiated the 1960 Greensboro Woolworth lunch counter sit-ins, setting into motion a whirlwind of sit-ins that swept the South and reignited the Civil Rights movement. The film uses first hand accounts of the events to document one volatile winter in Greensboro that not only changed public accommodation laws in North Carolina, but served as a blueprint for nonviolent protests throughout the 1960s.
FEBRUARY ONE reminds us that the fight for civil rights was a movement of ordinary people, motivated to extraordinary deeds by the need to assert their basic human dignity.
