2023 Black History Month poster. The 2023 Department of Defense Black History Month poster depicts from left, Joseph McNeil, Franklin McCain, Billy Smith and Clarence Henderson, on the second day of a peaceful sit-down protest they organized at a Woolworth in Greensboro, North Carolina, Feb. 2, 1960. The Greensboro sit-ins were the first prominent non-violent sit-in protests of the civil rights movement and lasted from Feb. 1 to July 25, 1960. The protests led to the Woolworth Department Store chain ending its policy of racial segregation in its stores. (Graphic by the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute)
