0 The Friendship 9 South Carolina Activists

The 'Friendship 9,' a group of college students and activists in Rock Hill, South Carolina, claimed a place in American history by challenging Jim Crow laws. In 1961 while trying to be served a meal, they were arrested for a sit-in at McCrory's Five and Dime in Rock Hill. Today, 54 years later, a South Carolina Judge exonerated the 'Friendship 9' activists and cleared their criminal record!
