Cooperative efforts between the black and white leadership and an agreed-upon media blackout in Houston, Texas, in 1960 led to its relatively quiet integration of lunch counters. Using the same cooperative methods, hotels, theaters, and restaurants soon followed. Protesting students and city leaders all helped make Houston's desegregation a media and political "non-event." Participants reminisce about the era.
