'This should be changed'

A truly heartwarming story about the "Racial Integration that Nobody Noticed" with a Lail as a player.

It's the story of Alma Shippy "one of the few (blacks) to attend any segregated college or junior college by invitation -- and not by court order and armed escort."

And then 16-year-old Marvin Lail had a key role in this story. Read it.

I noticed the story elsewhere on the Web and was pleased to see that it had been written by the Associated Press' Margaret Lillard, one-time UPI reporter Knoxville. Cool!
