"The South and Civil Rights"
A *Florence Herald* editorial on the proposed Civil Rights Bill backed by the Eisenhower administration.
An April 11, 1957 Florence Herald editorial on the Civil Rights Bill backed by the Eisenhower administration, which editorial stated, among other things, that "it is good to know that delegations in Congress from southern states are together in their opposition to the so-called civil rights bill now being backed by the Eisenhower administration." The editorial was hopeful that the bill, though it would probably pass the House, would be defeated in the Senate as Southern senators would apply the filibuster, itself "nothing new as civil rights bills are concerned since they have been blocked before and likely will be again."
