There's also this tidbit from McCain's college bio page:
His grandfather, the late Franklin McCain, was one of the four N.C. A&T students who were a part of the famous 1960 Woolworth lunch-counter sit-in protest that is credited for starting the modern-day Civil Rights Movement. The historic foursome was later nicknamed the Greensboro Four and are forever shrined in American history and museums throughout the country including the Smithsonian in Washington D.C.
McCain joins a group of Eagles corners that includes Darius Slay, Steve Nelson, Avonte Maddox, Zech McPhearson, Josiah Scott (IR), and Andre Chachere.
