Title

Letter to the Editor "Students View Integration, RC Behavior"

Description

This Collegian editorial discusses the opinion of Linwood Robertson, a student of Richmond College, on college integration. He believed that forceful integration would lead to the same fate for the University of Richmond as that of University of Alabama when it admitted Autherine Lucy as its first African-American student, which resulted in the largest riots by white segregationists reported after the ruling of Brown v. Board. He further said that integration at the University of Richmond will only lead to seclusion for black students since many organizations, fraternities, and communities on campus are not willing to accommodate these students.
