Central H.S. Announcements for 02/01/2018 

This month Central celebrates Black History

Four African American college students sat down at a lunch counter at Woolworth’s in Greensboro, North Carolina, and politely asked for service.  Their request was refused.  When asked to leave, they remained in their seats.  Their passive resistance and peaceful sit-down demand helped ignite a youth-led movement to challenge racial inequality throughout the south.
