Interview with Holly Hogrobrooks and Otis King about the sit-in protest at Weingarten's supermarket. Hogrobrooks begins by discussing the history of sit-in protests in Houston, beginning with Texas Southern University. They talk about the selection of Weingarten's supermarket, and the Black community's view of Riverside on the south side of the bayou. Hogrobrooks describes the reaction of shoppers to the student protest, and their own non-violent strategy.
