"The NAACP was...involved in Clara Luper's Oklahoma sit-in movement in the 1950s. An Oklahoma City school teacher, one who came to be called the 'mother' of the state's Civil Rights movement, Luper was the director of the Oklahoma City NAACP's Youth Council. With some of her children in tow, on August 20, 1958, she entered the downtown Katz Drugstore and asked for sit-down service while her charges took their seats at the food counter. Denied service, Luper and the children came back the next day. Katz's management yielded after white customers intervened, offering to buy meals for the polite young black students. Thus began Luper's Oklahoma sit-in movement that soon had string of successes in Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Enid, Lawton, and other towns around the state." (Smallwood)
