Counter Culture

Do you know someone who is contributing to the Counter Culture Movement?

The "Greensboro Four" were four young black men who staged a sit-in at Woolworth's lunch counter during the Civil Rights Movement in Greensboro, North Carolina.  Their names were Ezell Blair Jr., David Richmond, Franklin McCain and Joseph McNeil. Their courageous act of sitting at the restaurant counter might seem simple, but they were countering a culture that was rooted in systemic racism. 

 

Unfortunately, some of the ideas they challenged still exist today.  I believe, just like in the 1960s, today's young people will play a powerful role in bringing about the positive changes needed in the world today.  Keep scrolling and meet some of the phenomenal young people who are challenging stereotypes, influencing the culture, and shaping the future.
