Interview with Orval Faubus
QUESTION 31
INTERVIEWER:

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT IT? BE A MAN, JUST TELL ME, YOU KNOW, WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT BLACK AND WHITE CHILDREN GOING-IS THERE SOMETHING WRONG WITH THEM GOING TO SCHOOL TOGETHER?

Orval Faubus:

I hope not. I think only time and events of the nation will prove… if the nation survives, if everything improves, if quality of education improves, if human relations improve, that'll prove it's good. If they deteriorate and it goes the other way then there are those who will say that that proves it bad.
