Tu Books Editorial Director Stacy Whitman went to the National Museum of American History in Washington, DC. There was an actor at the museum playing one of the students from a 1960s Montgomery, Alabama, lunch counter sit-in. He explained why sit-ins and non-violent protests were important in bringing about social changes in our country. The young boy at the bottom left is answering the actor’s question about why just sitting at the lunch counter was important. The boy had a great answer too: “because we’re all equal.”
