1964

From the Kershner (Charles) Papers. A seven page speech by Charles “Chuck” Kershner, the editor of The Student Printz in spring 1964. The speech was delivered during the Symposium on Social Justice held at USM’s Thad Cochran Center on November 9, 2007, and it addresses the censorship of the March 20, 1964, issue of the Printz. Copies of the issue were confiscated because of a story recounting John Frazier’s attempt to enroll at USM. Mr. Frazier, an African American, was denied admittance. A replacement issue was printed in which two very bland stories were substituted for the Frazier story. In 2007, a surviving issue with the Frazier story in it surfaced, and was added to the Archives. On November 9, 2007, Kershner and Frazier met face-to-face for the first time as guest speakers for the symposium.
