- In this May 20, 1971 guest column, Peter Robinson, then rector of St. Francis Episcopal Church, challenges Greensboro to overcome the paranoia associated with integration of the public schools. Robinson credits the city's school board and the courts system for the steps they had taken toward progress, and asks that the people of Greensboro come together to assist with integration. An editorial from the student newspaper of previously all-white Page High School in Greensboro is also quoted in this write up. This article was clipped and saved in a scrapbook on desegregation by Clarence "Curly" Harris, manager of the Greensboro Woolworth store at the time of the 1960 sit-ins that spawned lunch counter sit-ins across the South and rejuvenated the civil rights movement.
