Norfolk Starts Registration for Private Classes
(WSLS Television, Roanoke, VA)

No spoken word. While the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals was deciding whether to grant Norfolk schools a year's stay in school integration, the Tidewater Educational Foundation attempted to register as many white students as possible for private classes in case Norfolk's 6 junior and senior high schools were closed. This clip also contains footage of an orderly demonstration at Norview High School in Norfolk, where white students demanded their school be opened.
