  • 1961 and 1962 Protests in Raleigh. Howard Johnson restaurant. NC State name.

    WRAL reporter Scott Mason takes us back to 1961 and 1962 when demonstrators held peaceful protests in Raleigh on two very different subjects.

    In 1961, black people were not permitted to eat at Howard Johnson restaurant on Capitol Boulevard in Raleigh. A peaceful protest was held and the outcome was a change in the law.

    In 1962, another protest demonstration was held in Raleigh when when NC State College expanded its graduate school offerings. The college wanted to change its name to NC State University. The UNC Consolidated System, which governs all state-supported schools in the state, rejected that name and told the school that it had to change its name to UNC-Raleigh. The name became NC State University.
