Hey NC! We were thrilled to speak with the exceedingly modest Braxton Foushee today. On February 28, 1960, he and other Lincoln High School students staged a sit in at the Colonial Drugstore (now West End Wine Bar) on Franklin Street. He continued a life of service by helping to integrate other parts of Franklin Street and the UNC Hospital Cafeteria. He was instrumental in the building of Hank Anderson Park and the restoration of Carr Mill Mall. He’s a dedicated Scoutmaster and the definition of public servant.
