In 1938, when he was just 19 years old, he opened a luncheonette in his hometown of Waycross, Georgia.

Lunch counters, diners, soda fountains and candy stores were then seen as the way to go.

Darden took this path, naming his luncheonette The Green Frog, and advertising it as "Service with a Hop."

And he defied the laws of his Southern State by refusing to segregate his customers based on race.
