Summary
In this statement at the Virginia General Assembly's public hearings on school legislation, Darden expresses his opposition to the decision and the belief that the United States Congress should have been the final arbiter on such a decision. He explains the race situation in Southside Virginia and predicts that integration will not occur in this area because the races live near each other. Darden pushes for adoption of the Gray Plan and believes its local option plan will help the Southside. He wants as little integration as possible but desires the adoption of a plan with almost unanimous support
