This February 12, 1960, article from The Carolinian, the student newspaper of The Woman's College of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (WCUNC)reports that WCUNC Chancellor Gordon W. Blackwell advised students at the university to avoid the Greensboro lunch counter sit-ins that began on February 1, 1960, and were continuing at the time. Blackwell stated that participation by WCUNC students had inflamed the situation, and that the protests were "not a wise move", and he urged students to consider the community-wide implications of their actions.
