Summary
This is a recording of a program, hosted by Walter Cronkite, highlighting the "voices of Virginians speaking on one issue: the schools and who will attend them." The issue is school integration and Virginia's legislated agenda to prevent desegregation in the public schools, also known as Massive Resistance. The program is marked by sound bites from Governor Almond, as well as discussions of the Virginia General Assembly's passage of laws forcing the closure of schools forced to integrate and giving the governor the power either to reopen the schools on a segregated basis or deny state funding to those that do integrate. According to proponents of Massive Resistance, the laws "seek to avoid the occurrence of anything in Virginia that might disturb the peace and tranquility of the cities and counties." The program also includes quotes from officials and citizens on both sides of the issue. Specific situations in Norfolk, Arlington and Charlottesville are discussed in detail, with Cronkite's ultimate conclusion that "Virginians are not of a single mind" on this issue
