Part two of a two-part program that explores how the community’s response contributed to Virginia’s “Massive Resistance” laws defying attempts at public school desegregation, particularly after the Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision in 1954.

A round-table discussion - including Rev. James Kilby, Pastor of First Baptist Church in Washington, VA; Betty Leckie, Former Warren County Teacher (1959 - 1960); Dr. J. Michael Utzinger, Elliott Professor of Religion, Chair of the Dept. of Religion at Hampden-Sydney College - will focus on the insights gained from the first presentation and community reconciliation.
