Eva Clayton, who served North Carolina's 1st district in the U.S. House of Representatives for more than a decade, initiated AFSC's 1963 Citizenship Education Project in Warren and Franklin counties. In September 2013, she spoke to her fellow project participants when they gathered to mark the project's 50th anniversary.
In the segregated South, in the summer of 1963, the first interracial group to live together in Warren County took up residence in a tiny, sweltering apartment over Brown's Superette and Grill.
