Southern Student Exchange Program continues

(Date is for when it was reported in the Sophian)

The Sophian printed the comments of many of that year’s Southern Student Exchange (SSE) program participants, giving a range of opinions on civil rights and black-white relationships in the South. They had attended different-sized black, white, and integrated colleges. One student who visited predominantly black Tougaloo College in Mississippi, previously a center of civil rights activities, commented that “It seems that after the civil rights bill of 1963 that the students got tired… there is a feeling of frustration… they have put in a lot of work and nothing is really different.”
