- Created Date
This letter is from Mr. and Mrs. Byrn, white Tennessee residents, who support both Clement's decision to send the National Guard to Clinton, TN and desegregation as a whole. Mrs. Byrn includes an inspiring story of her conversation with some neighbor children concerning school integration. One particularly impactful quote comes from one of the boys: They [African American children] have as much right to an education as I have, and I would do nothing to keep them from going to our school and would help them all I could.
