This book provides a vivid portrayal of one southern journalist's campaign for racial justice.Lenoir Chambers was editor of the Norfolk Virginian-Pilot during the 1950s [and] in 1954, following the Supreme Court's Brown v. Board of Education decision, he urged southerners to accept the fact that the age of segregation was over. Instead, Virginia embarked on a determined campaign of massive resistance...In 1960 Chambers received the Pulitzer Prize. He had, indeed, been unique: the only editor of a major Virginia newspaper to advocate obedience to what, after all, was the law of the land!
