Friends, family, university presidents and politicians gathered for the funeral of civil rights pioneer Franklin McCain Friday afternoon at Friendship Missionary Baptist Church.  McCain was one of four African-American college students who sat down at an all-white lunch counter in Greensboro in 1960 that helped spur sit-ins across the country.
