The Chapel Hill Nine On Feb. 28, the Town of Chapel Hill dedicated a historical marker outside the West End Wine Bar, the former site of Colonial Drug Store, to honor the Chapel Hill Nine. On Feb. 28, 1960, the nine young men from Chapel Hill’s all-black Lincoln High School, inspired by a sit-in at Woolworth’s in Greensboro, went to Colonial Drug and sat at the whites-only counter. They refused to move and were arrested. Their sit-in helped spark similar civil rights protests in Chapel Hill. Four of the surviving members attended the dedication ceremony, which was arranged by a task force created by Mayor Pam Hemminger to study Chapel Hill’s civil rights history.
