    The students of black race organised sit-ins in restaurants which were normally meant for white people only.

    They also boycotted local suppliers who were supporting segregation which lead to financial struggles of the said suppliers.


    As time went on the sit-ins spread to other parts of state and other shops and without police supervision there were attacks from shop owners and white students.

    Eventually due to attack and riots police arrested students and charged them with several crimes.
