Sit-In Exhibit Opens Thursday 2-02-2010

Thursday, the Tennessee State Museum will open an exhibit marking the 50th anniversary of the civil rights sit-ins.
The exhibit will document events that happened in Nashville, Chattanooga, Memphis and Knoxville.
In 1960, black students demanded service at segregated lunch counters. The massive demonstrations helped end the south's old Jim Crow policies.
Some of the original stools from Nashville's sit-ins are featured in the museum's exhibit.
