COMMUNITY IMPACT

The International Civil Rights Center & Museum, and iconic Landmark, is a comprehensive Civil Rights museum and an innovative social justice educational organization devoted to the understanding and advancement of civil and human rights at home and around the world. It commemorates the Feb. 1, 1960, sit-ins at a whites-only lunch counter in Greensboro, by the N.C. A&T Four students. Their non-violent direct action challenged America to make good its promises of equality and civic inclusion enunciated in the Constitution. The F.W. Woolworth’s five-and-dime site, now home to the Center and Museum, is a monument to the bravery visionary young advocates of full citizenship and social justice.

Construction of the museum in Greensboro, N.C., received a much needed financial injection of $28 million in NMTC financing from U.S. Bancorp CDE Stonehenge Community Development. NMTC financing filled a critical funding gap after more than a decade of fundraising and building to ensure the Museum opened on February 1, 2010, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Greensboro sit-in.
