PRA Archive #: 

This is the first part of a set of speeches delivered at a banquet held in Jackson, Mississippi on June 17, three days after the funeral of National Association for the Advancement of Colored People leader Medgar Evars. The banquet was held to launch the Southern Committee to Elect the Next President of the United States. The principal speakers were Governors Ross Barnett of Mississippi and George Wallace of Alabama. Governors Wallace and Barnett had both testified before the Senate Commerce Committee which held hearings on a bill designed to end discrimination in places of public accommodation. In their testimony before that committee, both governors testified that the integration movement was Communist-led and opposed passage of the administration’s civil rights bill. After both governors speak, the narrator introduces the next speaker, Tom Anderson, though he appears on the next tape. Anderson is a syndicated columnist and president, editor in chief, majority holder, and publisher of Farm and Ranch Magazine. The speeches were recorded by Dale Minor.
