Summary
Story about the historic struggle of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s during the time of segregation at Rock Hill, S.C. Ten young Black men peaceably entered McCrory's Variety Store and asked to be served at the lunch counter with equal service as Whites. They were arrested in spite of their non-violent protest and sent to prison. Charles Taylor returned to College shortly afterward, and worked to support the efforts of equality. The men who remained and served a longer prison sentence became known as the Friendship 9. They became an inspiration to other Civil Rights advocates and their historic sit-in protest sit-in inspired the Jail, No Bail movement. The Frienship 9 were Robert McCullough, John Gaines, Thomas Gaither, Clarence Graham, S.T. "Dub" Massey, Willie McCleod, James Wells, David Williamson, Jr., and Mark Workman
