Summary: In Fall 1959, James Lawson offered free evening classes on nonviolent action to university students in Nashville with the goal of training and preparing them to desegregate the city's business district. He guided his students in a study of both the history and practice of nonviolent methods to prepare them for their "sit-ins" at downtown stores. Lawson's guidance helps the students endure the beatings and arrests, and lead a boycott, as they bring their stuggle for civil rights to the steps of Nashville City Hall and ultimately to the forefront of national attention
