  • Description

    White students in New Orleans November 28 boycotted two integrated schools, the Williams Frantz and McDonogh No. 19, in protest against the attendance of four Negro girls.

    In buses paid for by two New Orleans plumbers, white students flocked to segregated schools in nearby St. Bernard county, leaving McDonogh school entirely to three of the Negro children while one Negro child and seven white children entered William Frantz school. Only two of the white students stayed for classes.

    Hundreds of jeering white spectators greeted the little Negro girls arrival two weeks ago, but only a handful turned out at the two schools November 28.

    So far there has been no ruling by a three-judge panel set up to consider a request to suspend integration pending on a settlement of federal and state differences.
