A conference was held marking the 50th anniversary of the 1959 end of Massive Resistance, Virginia’s campaign to circumvent the public school desegregation ordered in the Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision in 1954. In 1958, Virginia Governor James Almond closed schools throughout Virginia, most predominately in Norfolk, to prevent them from being integrated.

Panelists talked about the legacy and lasting impact on civil rights of the Massive Resistance movement. The panel presentation and questions were moderated by Ms. Daphne Maxwell Reid.

“What are the Lasting Effects of Massive Resistance?” at 3:30 p.m. was the fourth panel of the 12th Annual Virginia Political History Project “With All Deliberate Speed? Massive Resistance in Virginia.” The conference was held on Friday, July 17, 2009, in the Virginia Capitol Building, in Richmond, Virginia. close
