Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to examine North Carolina newspaper coverage of the 1960 sit-in movement during the first two weeks, prior to its spread to other Southern states and across the nation. Specifically, this study investigates whether newspapers accurately perceived the fact that a historical movement was developing. Additionally, the study examines if newspapers depicted the enormity of the economic impact of the movement. This paper is based primarily on evidence from three mainstream papers, the Charlotte Observer, the Raleigh News and Observer, and The Greensboro Daily News. Additional articles were examined from one African American newspaper, the student publication, the A&T Register, at North Carolina A&T State University.
