Virginia: How Long Can Defiance Last?

Muse, Benjamin
January 1956
New Republic;1/23/56, Vol. 134 Issue 4, p10
The article focuses on the outlaw of race segregation in the public schools of Virginia, by Supreme Court. A court decision under the governance of State Senator Garland Gray, called for a radical amendment in Virginia's constitution to permit the use of public funds to finance private, segregated schools. It authorized the expenditure of these funds, not as a direct subsidy but through tuition grants to parents in localities in which the public schools might be integrated or else closed down as the result of the Supreme Court's decision.
