Description:

This thirty-one page report contains preliminary findings regarding student protests originating at Greensboro's Dudley High School around May 1, 1969, which escalated over several weeks and culminated in a violent clash with local police and National Guard on the campus of North Carolina A&T State University (A&T) on May 22nd and 23rd. The report describes the open meeting as an effort of fact-finding and defines the responsibilities of the commission and the state advisory committee. The report, published in booklet form, contains a chronology of events, an analysis of the situation, and a set of recommendations for the Greensboro public schools, A&T, the Greensboro police, and the Greensboro community at large. This particular copy of the report was used by historian William Chafe as part of his research culminating in his book Civilities and Civil Rights published in 1980.
