From Opening Doors to Opening MindsBy Dr. George L. Daniels
It was 40 years ago this past June that the late Alabama Gov. George Wallace stood in the schoolhouse door of the University of Alabama’s Foster Auditorium trying to prevent the enrollment of Vivian Malone and James Hood. His defiant stance against integration won him political acclaim in some circles and disdain in others. Fortunately, his actions did not prevent Malone or Hood from attending the university. Malone went on to complete her studies at the university. Hood later returned to the university to complete his doctorate in the 1990s.
