Exchange-Civil Rights Museum

Exchange-Civil Rights Museum

In this Feb. 1, 2010 photo, Geneva Tisdale, a former cook at the F. W. Woolworth lunch counter, takes a tour at the grand opening of the International Civil Rights Center & Museum in Greensboro, N.C. When four young black men from N.C. A&T sat down at a whites-only lunch counter in downtown, they sparked a fight for civil rights that has reverberated for 60 years. That legacy gives a strength of purpose to John Swaine, CEO of the International Civil Rights Center & Museum. The museum, which is in its 10th year, is now on relatively smooth financial terrain, earning a profit and expanding its educational programs to the community. (Lynn Hey/News & Record via AP)
