- Greensboro Daily News reporter Joe McNulty spent three weeks interviewing black students and employees at Grimsley High School, a formerly all-white high school that had just been integrated, in preparation for this article. The article reports varying views that African American students had regarding busing programs that forced them to go to Grimsley instead of Dudley, the city's predominantly black high school. Many of the black students quoted in the article showed disdain toward the busing program itself or to black peers at Grimsley who seemed to be "Tomming it" and "act(ing) white" in their attempts to adjust to the new climate. 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.
