Civil Rights, Culture Wars

University of North Carolina Press

Four years after filing a lawsuit, in a four-day trial in Greenville and Oxford, Frank Parker for the plaintiffs asked the court to order the Textbook Purchasing Board to approve Conflict and Change. Defense witnesses, including Howard E. Railes and John M. Turnipseed, showed the racial nature of their objections to the book. In April 1980 Judge Orma R. Smith ruled in favor the plaintiffs and ordered state officials to add it to the list of approved textbooks.
