The Montgomery Advertiser

The Montgomery Advertiser — Jan. 15, 1963 Readable PDF

Published well before the integration issue came to a head at the University of Alabama, this issue of The Montgomery Advertiser covers the inauguration of Gov. George Wallace. Above a full color photo of Wallace and his family sits the headline "Wallace Defies Federal Encroachment; 'Will Submit No More To Tyranny.'" The paper marks an important milestone in the story of integration, describing Wallace's staunch position on segregation and federal intervention. The article also quotes his infamous inaugural speech: "Let us rise to the call of freedom loving blood that is in us…I draw the line in the dust and toss the gauntlet before the feet of tyranny…and I say…segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever."
