This May 30, 1963 edition of the Selma Times-Journal features interesting segregation, desegregation, and voters drive-related articles.  One title states “No Sales of Liquor, Negro Entry Day” (liquor stores are ordered closed on the day that African-Americans Vivian Malone and James Hood enter the all-white University of Alabama); another states “Church Fight Won By Anti-Mixers” (delegates to a Methodist conference name 3 pro-segregationists to represent them).  Finally, “Voters Drive Set for Birmingham” (Rev. Andrew Young gives details about a voter drive).
