More Students Join the Protests: Another Student Interview (Lewis Brandon)


Almost immediately news of the sit-in spread across campus and students swarmed to the cause. The sit-in leaders coordinated with the student body president to arrange transportation and order. By the third day, students occupied 63 of the 65 seats at the lunch counter. Lewis Brandon, a student at North Carolina A&T, who coordinated picketing efforts, recalls in this interview from 1981 some of the opposition they faced.
