We Shall Not Be Moved: The Desegregation of the University of Georgia

By Robert A. Pratt | Go to book overview

CHAPTER THREE
“A Qualified Negro”

There is certainly no dispute that
no Negroes have ever attended
the University of Georgia. We will
stipulate that, but we will not stipulate
that there was any custom…on
the part of the authorities to exclude
them.

—B. D. “Buck” Murphy, attorney
for the defendant

The [legal] system is based on people
getting on the stand and telling the
truth. But people who talk about their
respect for tradition and integrity
and the Constitution get involved in
one lie after another. They’re willing
to break down the system to keep a
Negro out….This is one of the most
serious by-products of segregation.
The people get a disregard for the
law. They see supposedly important
people get up day after day on the
stand and lie. The reason the whole
thing seems funny to watch is that you
spend all that time proving something
everybody already knows.

—Constance Baker Motley, attorney
for the plaintiff
