This morning several of the original students joined in a panel session at TSU to talk about the protest and its impact. Eldrewey Stearns, who lead the protest, says the future looks bright.
"I see only a great future for the black people of today, once they accept what they are and what they want," he said.
After the discussion, a group of TSU students made the same march to where Weingartens used to stand. It's now a US post office. Once there, they unveiled a Texas historic marker highlighting the students' crusade to end segregation in Houston.
