Franklin McCain, Civil Rights Pioneer, Dies
Franklin McCain was one of four students who sat down at an all-white lunch counter in Greensboro, N.C., on February 1, 1960.
The freshman from North Carolina A&T ignited a sit-in movement in the Jim Crow South that led to other key chapters in the Civil Rights era.
McCain died yesterday at the age of 73.
