- This case study focuses on the "sit-in" demonstrations of the civil rights era. It explores the seminal sit-ins of the early 1960s as well as earlier examples of nonviolent protest which set the stage for their success. It also discusses the polarized public opinion regarding direct action as a tactic against racial injustice in both historical and contemporary contexts.
