Description

Article concerning McCroy's sit in published in the Chicago Daily Defender, December 22, 1960.
In 1960, four people, three of them African-Americans, were arrested after they sat at a McCrory's lunch counter reserved for white customers. They were fined $350 each and sentenced to 60 days in jail. Janet Mary Riley was part of the defense legal team and wrote the brief for the Lombard vs. Louisiana case that was heard by the United States Supreme Court, which overturned the arrests. The case was one of several that became precedents for striking down segregation laws and practices.
