The sit-ins at Rich’s department store in Atlanta, Georgia are a forgotten story of
resilience, hard work, and sacrifice for change. The Atlanta sit-ins were not just
an isolated incident, but rather a string of demonstrations.This points to the determination
of the people involved. All too much, we focus on the protests and demonstrations
that occur every day, but we often forget to focus our attention on the individual
people that make it happen.
