1956 Negroes Don’t Want Integration (Bull Connor/Citizens Council)

IMG_5605This letter to the editor from April 1, 1956 is from H.B. (Ben) Inzer who attended a  meeting called to form a white Citizens Council.  He describes Bull Connor as “wonderful” and describes Connor’s talk on segregation as “inspiring”.  Inzer (the writer) says, “Through talking to many Negroes here in Margaret, Ala., I am fully convinced that it is not the Negroes of Alabama who want integration, but they are being pushed by the agents of the Communists.”
