Southern Manifesto

Johnson, Gerald W.
April 1956
New Republic;4/9/56, Vol. 134 Issue 15, p8
The article presents views of the author on segregation of schools in the U.S. According to the author, the manifesto of the 96 Nullifiers who favor segregated schools has the superficial aspect of a pronouncement that the Supreme Court is unconstitutional. The honorable members who signed that manifesto certainly did not believe that they were putting their names to an incendiary document, for they have everything to lose by an explosion. Their purpose undoubtedly was to check extremists in the North by showing them the difficulty and danger attending the eradication of any long-established social pattern.
