Governor Almond Proposes New Program of Resistance to Racial Ingegration continued
(WSLS Television, Roanoke, VA)

Continued from clip 2_25: Governor Almond addressed a joint General Assembly and supported the Perrow Commission proposals. Almond claimed that massive resistance was not a formulation of "fruitless laws in contravention of federal power," but rather rested within the individual citizen. And that "the right to associate carries with it the right not to associate."
