This editorial in the Greenfield Recorder is a good deal more optimistic than previous editorials about the progress of the movement for racial equality. The editors stress the large number of schools in the American south "that have started the integration process." They suggest that the struggle for racial equality is similar to the efforts of white immigrant groups to be accepted in American society. By this measure, progress is being made. The editors predict that full legal rights for blacks will take another decade and social equality much longer.
