Description: This November 2, 1962 editorial published in the Guilford College student newspaper, The Guilfordian, sends out a call to Guilford College students to speak their mind on issues rather than shying away from controversial topics. The piece also points to the need for professors to support such discussions and actions rather than encouraging inactivity, which was significant against the backdrop civil rights demonstrations and sit-ins which were in full swing in Greensboro and elsewhere around the country.
