Reactions to Brown in the Richmond area and elsewhere in Virginia

This Richmond paper has this article about recollections of area people who experienced the local reaction to the Brown v. Board v. Education decision.

The Daily Press has this series of articles about the effect of Brown in Southeastern Virginia.

From right here in Abingdon is this oral history interview (to which I've linked before) with Ms. Harriet Debose, who was one of my sister's teachers, and who was an African-American teacher in Washington County at the time when segregation in the schools was ended here.
