Ninety-Six Congressmen versus the Nine Justices

Bickel, Alexander M.
April 1956
New Republic;4/23/56, Vol. 134 Issue 17, p11
This article reports on the Declaration of Constitutional Principles attacking the U.S. Supreme Court's school segregation decision, which was issued on March 11, by Congressional delegates. The Declaration enters, on the part of the South, a universe of discourse different from that in which the South's men of violence and demagoguery dwell, and into which they have been trying to draw us. Communism, for example, escapes any mention. The Supreme Court itself provided the lawful means for delayed and gradual implementation of its decision, in wise deference to the age and tenacity of the custom which it must eventually displace.
