  • Description

    The T.V. speech Governor J. Lindsay Almond of Virginia made Jan 20 (after Federal and State court rulings that school integration must be implemented) attacked anti-segrationists and called on Virginians to maintain a makeshift system of private education in communities where schools had closed to avoid court-ordered integration.

    On the Governor's orders nine schools in Norfolk, Charlottesville and Front Royal were closed to prevent mixing a handful of negroes with 13,000 white students.

    Governor E.F. Hollings of South Carolina has also spoken in defiance of the court rulings, and negroes in Atlanta intend to board buses de-segregated by the counts.
