By February of 1960, Terry Sanford had been working for the better part of a decade to win the governorship of North Carolina. But when four young black men sat down at a Woolworth counter in the city of Greensboro in his home state and demanded to be served, their actions put him in the most excruciating dilemma. This is the story of a progressive Southern governor and his bare-knuckle politics during segregation's reign.
