This February 1960 photo shows people taking part in a civil rights sit-in protest at the lunch counter in McCrory’s in Rock Hill. A year later, the Friendship Nine launched the “jail, no bail” strategy at the same place. They were quickly arrested and then convicted trespassing and breach of peace. They opted for a month’s hard labor on a prison farm rather than allow bail or a fine to be posted for them by civil rights groups.
