This 1958 Sit-In At the Dockum Drug Store in Kansas kicked off the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s


Galyn Vesey participated in one of the first lunch counter sit-ins in the United States during the Civil Rights movement. He joins Ali Velshi to discuss the significance of the sit-in and how peaceful protests like the sit-in influenced the racial justice movement happening today.
