*On this date in 1960, a “Sit in” occurred in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Nine Black Southern University students were arrested for “disturbing the peace”. This was after sitting at the “white only” segregated lunch counters in the downtown Baton Rouge. The locations were a Kress Department store and the local Greyhound bus station.
Despite the peaceful nature of their protests, they were expelled from the school.
