Vivian Malone and James Hood after registering later that day. Malone, who became the first African American graduate of the University, died in 2005.

Honestly, it was about time. Now, what we have is a mobthink crowd like the black caucus that discriminates against their own color for thought crimes.

And thanks for giving Notre-our-lord-and-saviour-obungle-Dame football lessons.

Unless, I missed it, no where in this article does it identify George Wallace as the Democrat Governor of Alabama, as it would more then likely have identified him as a Republican, if he had been one, which he wasn’t. George Wallace was a Democrat.

The balding guy with his arms folded is Nicholas Katzenbach, attorney for Kennedy at the time and USAG under Johnson.

Rest in Peace, Ms. Hood. Men such as you and James Meredith are American heroes.
