Day 1: We started off our day with lunch! My friends and I went to eat at the Crafted: The Art of the Taco.  We all highly recommend that you go eat there because their tacos were superb delicious. Afterwards, we toured the International Civil Rights Center & Museum. I leaned about who were the  Greensboro Four. I don't remember learning about them in my history class. This really surprised me because they were four college students who attended the North Carolina A&T University who started a peaceful demonstration!! They began a peaceful sit-in at a local restaurant to fight for their right to eat there. Even though they were denied service they continued to come to the restaurant day after day. Their action inspired other university students to join in and thus a movement was created. Learning about this really inspired me that as a college student we are capable of making a difference in our community. If you want to learn more about them please watch, February One: The Story of the Greensboro Four.
The next museum we visited was the Greensboro Historical Museum. There we learned about the development of the city of Greensboro. 
Lastly, we went to the North Carolina A&T University where we had a discussion with Professor Art Davis about how we can address mass Incarceration.
Now we are settled at Charleston, South Carolina the weather is so nice!  I can't wait to see what's in stored for tomorrow! 
This is at the Crafted: The Art of the Taco.
Here we are at North Carolina A&T University. We took
a picture in front of the Greensboro Four statue.
