NEWLY RESTORED FILM SHOWS SEGREGATION PROTESTS AT HOUSTON LUNCH COUNTERS

http://abc7news.com/news/historic-film-shows-lunch-counter-protests-in-1960-houston/1163889/

For the first time in more than five decades you can take a look at a piece of Houston history; film that was shot of protests and demonstrations to end segregation in Houston.

On March 4 1960, students from TSU staged a sit-in at the Weingarten's lunch counter to protest segregation at Houston eateries. The following day, they held a sit-in at Madding's drug store.

KTRK was there and shot film of the sit-ins as well as a protest at the cafeteria at City Hall.

7. I'm not getting any audio either.

That seems odd, even for the age of the film. Happy to have the video, though!

8. There is some audio near the end...

 

where a reporter is questioning a young man.

9. Thank You, SusanCalvin!

I'm still watching and am amazed by the number and age range of people out protesting, even with their kids.

I'm so grateful to all of them for giving us something simply taken for granted, shopping and getting a quick bite to eat.

It should be called apartheid and not just the act to segregate.
