MT HOLLY, N.J. (WPVI) --Employees and visitors at Burlington County courthouse Friday had a chance to hear a firsthand account of a seminal moment in civil rights history.
Bobby Battle was one of the first to take part in the sit-ins at the Woolworth lunch counter in Greensboro, North Carolina in 1960.
At the time, the restaurant had a "whites only" policy.
The sit-in started with four men.
By the third day, more than 300 people joined in.
The protest spread to lunch counters throughout the nation.
