Description: This February 16, 1968 article published in the Guilford College student newspaper, The Guilfordian, reports on the efforts of the Guilford College community to force local barber shops to integrate. This is significant as a point in the college’s history when the students, both white and black, were willing to take up a cause and push for a meaningful solution, regardless of whether or not it was considered the popular course of action.
