Civil rights activists remember Woolworth’s lunch counter sit in

Saturday marks the 59th anniversary of when Tougaloo College students and faculty staged a sit-in at the Woolworth's lunch counter in Jackson, Mississippi. The historic moment was documented by an iconic photograph that shows the sit-in by civil rights activists protesting segregation and the violent reaction that soon provoked. Elise Preston spoke to some of those who were there that day and saw it first-hand.
