Historical marker planned for Franklin Street to honor 'Chapel Hill 9'


The Town of Chapel Hill has dedicated a site for an historical marker recognizing the Chapel Hill 9. The Chapel Hill 9 was a group of young men from Chapel Hill's all-black Lincoln High School that held a sit-in at Colonial Drug Store on Feb. 28, 1960. The marker will be installed in 2020, the 60th anniversary of the event. Thursday the town unveiled a rendering of the marker. (ABC 11)
