The International Civil Rights Center & Museum (ICRCM), located in Greensboro, N.C., is an archival center, collecting museum and teaching facility devoted to the international struggle for civil and human rights. This national landmark and national site of conscience celebrates the nonviolent protests of the 1960 Greensboro sit-ins that served as a catalyst in the civil rights movement. Our vision is to memorialize the courageous stand of the Greensboro Four as they launched, for posterity, the sit-in movement Feb. 1, 1960. We hope that the ICRCM, with its focus on the sit-in activities at the F.W. Woolworth lunch counter in Greensboro in 1960, will inspire the vigilance and fortify the spirit of all oppressed people to step forward in the ongoing struggle for human freedom.

The International Civil Rights Museum is a great place to take anyone of all ages! It is informative, and tells an accurate history of things of the past that are no longer happening today.

This was a powerful experience. I thought I knew much about Civil Rights. I realized how much I still need to learn. Dillon was excellent. A combination of passion and education. Everyone should go!
