Clarence L. Harris

Age: 94

lunch manager who in 1960 let four black students remain at Woolworth's whites-only counter. Harris did not serve the protesters, but his insistence that police not be called helped energize the sit-in, which after six months succeeded in integrating the counter. The action sparked similar tests across the South.

Died: Greensboro, N.C., July 12, 1999
