(Redirected from Sit-ins)

A sit-in is a form of nonviolent protest.


  • It's not so good to refer to what you're going to do as a sit-in. That right there castrates you. Right there it brings you down. What goes with it? Think of the image of someone sitting. An old woman can sit. An old man can sit. A chump can sit. A coward can sit. Anything can sit. Well, you and I have been sitting long enough and it's time for us today to start doing some standing and some fighting to back that up.
    • Malcolm X, "The Ballot or the Bullet," April 4, 1964
