In Rock Hill, South Carolina, 10 black protesters -- 9 of them from Friendship Junior College -- stage a sit-in protest at the lunch counter of a downtown variety store. They are arrested and charged with trespassing and breach of peace. Under a new protest strategy called "jail, no bail," 9 of the 10 -- "The Friendship Nine" -- serve out a 30-day sentence at the York County Prison Camp.
