* Supreme Court acts to ban bus segregation

A landmark decision by the United States Supreme Court outlawed bus segregation throughout the country, doing much to create defiant reactions throughout the South. This issue has a 2 column heading on page 6: "Segregation Bus Ban" with another smaller one column heading: "Negroes Jubilant"

A significant issue in the early Civil Rights movement. Complete in 24 pages, minor spine wear, otherwise nice.
