Six of the seven barrio with cafeteria counters that were affably chip in 1960 are still continuing in burghal San Antonio, as apparent on the map at left. The counters no best abide and the barrio accept new purposes, but civilian rights advocates are attractive to reemphasize the celebrated accident for approaching generations.

The beginning action to body the cafeteria adverse and accessible a centermost committed to civilian rights history is an accomplishment to affluence the apropos of advocates of the 20th-century angle of history at the armpit of the Battle of the Alamo, but abounding of the Woolworth supporters are accepting none of it.
East Side activist Nettie Hinton, who has teamed up with the association and others to anatomy the bounded Woolworth Architecture Coalition, said the area of the Woolworth Building, area bodies would angle at Alamo and Houston streets to bolt the bus from burghal to the East Side, has added claimed acceptation with the African-American association than the Kress Building.

The abstraction of a civilian rights convention alike amidst a agitation over the 1921 Woolworth Architecture in Alamo Plaza. The architecture is one of three state-owned structures that could be at atomic partially burst for a new Alamo museum, to accessible in 2024 as the centerpiece of the $450 actor makeover of the plaza.

Because the new building is still beneath design, and admiral are negotiating acreage acquisitions that could affect the design, Treviño, an architect, said he can’t say that the Woolworth Architecture won’t be demolished.
“Nothing has been decided,” he said.
Alamo CEO Douglass W. McDonald recommended hiring Trinity University history assistant Carey Latimore aftermost year to accomplish a abstraction to actuate the cultural acceptation of the Woolworth Building. That study, which has been completed but not released, will be presented in January to a six-member Alamo activity administration committee. It includes capacity of the seven cafeteria counters that desegregated March 16, 1960, amidst threats of demonstrations by the NAACP.
“The amazing affair is this is absolutely a Houston Street adventure because six of the cafeteria counters were on Houston Street,” Treviño said. “It would be a huge disservice to alone accede the Woolworth cafeteria counter.”
The 1938 Kress Architecture at 311 E. Houston St. housed addition of those cafeteria counters. The six-story anatomy has undergone exoteric and autogenous renovations in contempo years, and it now houses the Texas de Brazil restaurant on its arena floor.

“The aboriginal account letters on Wednesday, March 16, 1960, focused on the Kress Architecture because reporters begin atramentous and white barter actuality served there,” she said.
GrayStreet Partners, which is renovating the Kress Building, has offered to accommodate 5,000 aboveboard anxiety “in the actual atom area history happened” hire chargeless for 10 years to serve as a abode for learning, analysis and lectures, Treviño said.

Because of a mislabeled photograph in the Convention of Texan Cultures Collection and a long-told burghal allegory that the Woolworth cafeteria adverse was the aboriginal in the South to desegregate, the history of the Woolworth has generally been misunderstood, experts say.
The linear-shaped Kress adverse has sometimes been misidentified as the Woolworth counter, which had a convolute configuration, Trevino said.
He said there’s abundant abstracts accessible to accurately carbon the Kress counter.
“We’ve got pictures of the Kress and pictures that everybody’s assuming as the Woolworth, and they match, bottomward to the paintings on the wall. We’ve alike got the blueprints. So we can absolutely reconstruct the cafeteria counter,” Treviño said.

“We are afraid to see how Dr. Latimore’s address parses this affirmation and reveals added capacity about that celebrated day. Especially back primary affirmation indicates that both Woolworth and Kress became the primary targets of the aboriginal demonstration movement,” she said.
“We apperceive of no acumen why there needs to be a affected best to ‘pay tribute’ to the Woolworth Architecture at addition site,” Zaiontz said. “Civil rights tourism is a growing industry. The Alamo should not leave this money on the table or alter it two blocks away.”
“Finally, we accede with Dr. Winders,” she added. “San Antonio is already a abundant city. An bigger Alamo with a new building interpreting the abounding 300 years of Alamo history, through reclaim of its battleground buildings, will drag this site. We attending advanced to seeing how the new building and convention will adapt the 180 years of Alamo history afterwards 1840.”
