Washington, D.C. youth activists with Operation Understanding D.C.'s 22nd class of black and Jewish high school students, met with members of Rock Hill's Friendship Nine Tuesday at the Five and Dine to discuss the civil rights leaders' experiences. The group is on a 25-day "civil rights" journey through New York and southern states as part of its year-long program. The students met with the men at the former McCrory's lunch counter where the college students staged a sit-in in 1961 and served in a prison camp. David Thackham
