Delegates Charles Green and Sam Pope Comment on Perrow Commission Proposals
(WSLS Television, Roanoke, VA)

Delegate Charles Green of Bedford claimed that he could support some of the Perrow Commission proposals until the Assembly was able to construct a more effective plan that would reflect the thoughts of Bedford County and result in purely segregated schools. He was convinced that due to the court system, the legislature was powerless to maintain segregated schools at this juncture, and suggested that "[t]he only way we can have massive resistance is for the masses to resist."
