Little Known Black History Fact: Franklin McCain

The Woolworth’s where McCain and the other students sparked a historical change in the fabric of civil rights history is now the International Civil Rights Center museum. The museum opened exactly 50 years after the Greensboro Four efforts. A part of the lunch counter is on display at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History.

Sadly, Frank McCain passed away last week from a reported “brief illness” only a few blocks away from the Woolworth’s where he helped to spark change of an entire nation.

The Greensboro Four:

Franklin McCain (Deceased)

Ret. Maj Gen. Joseph McNeil

Ezell A. Blair Jr. (Now Jibreel Khazan)

David Richmond (Deceased)
