Matt thinks he may have snatched up a remnant of American Civil Rights history. Perusing Craig’s List, Matt saw an ad for two “F.W. Woolworth Co.” signs. The seller claims he helped clean out a closed Winston-Salem store in the 1990s. Matt aks Tukufu to find out whether these signs were at the Winston-Salem Woolworth’s lunch counter sit-in.
