Still We Sit – Escape Room





School Year



Still We Sit is a escape room that portrays what happened at the Greensboro Four sit-ins. This movement consisted in nonviolent protests that helped stop segregation in the U.S. However, they started specifically at a lunch counter in Greensboro with four men, and expanded to neighboring cities.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
– Martin Luther King Jr.

The Purpose

The objective of this escape room is to try to stick to the real part of the story and desegregate the lunch counters. However, to do so players will need to solve different puzzles. These puzzles are related to the events of the protest and showcase not only some of the characters that motivated this protest but also songs, interesting stories, and events that happened in the sit-ins.
