Connie is only eight years old, but as an African-American little girl living in the south in the 1960s, she already knows where she can and cannot go. When three young men stage a sit-in at Woolworth’s lunch counter in Greensboro, North Carolina Connie knows things are starting to change. She looks forward to the day when she can eat at Woolworth’s.
