Colonial Drugstore where high school students staged some sort of protest at a soda fountain?

Brian Clarke

Currently the West End Wine Bar at 450 West Franklin Street in Chapel Hill. Brando is correct that it is the former Colonial Drugstore, site of some famous Chapel Hill sit-ins.

Alfred Brophy

You're both right. It was the site of the Colonial Drug Store. Here's a link to an advertisement that the proprietor took out in the Chapel Hill News regarding integration -- on the UNC library website, of course!
