Summary
This program covers the Virginia General Assembly's public hearings on school legislation. Includes excerpts of statements from people with various views on how Virginia should handle the desegregation issue. The first track contains statements of Delegate J. Randolph Tucker of Richmond, and former Governor Colgate W. Darden supporting the Gray Plan. The second track includes statements from Hal Boyd, president of the Virginia AFL-CIO, opposing the Stanley Plan, Adele Clark calling for some degree of compliance with the Supreme Court decision, Joseph Freehill, Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, explaining that desegregation policy should be set at the state level, Lester Banks, president of the Virginia NAACP, calling for integration at all deliberate speed, and State Senator Edward O. McCue, Jr., of Charlottesville, outlining his plan for handling the segregation issue. The third track includes the statement of J. Segar Gravatt, taking exception to Darden's remark of the day earlier and stating that a course of moderation on the issue is unacceptable
