On This Day - April 25, 1956

 

From The Times archive

 

The civil rights campaign in the US
continued into the 1960s, and was ended
only after Congress introduced legislation
that overrode the opposition of state
and local government

 

THE City Bus Company of Montgomery has lost no time in acting upon yesterday’s Supreme Court in a test ruling against segregation on buses travelling within the state boundaries. Within 12 hours of the court’s decision, the company announced that in the circumstances it had “no choice” except to discontinue the practice of segregation of passengers on account of race, and drivers will no longer assign seats to passengers by reason of their race.”

Negroes who have joined in the boycott of the Montgomery company since last December, in an effort to force the abandonment of its segregation practices, have claimed that the company was losing $3,000 (approximately £1,000) a day as a result, and the suggestion is made that the company has found the court’s decision a useful screen behind which to retreat from an increasingly embarrassing position.

The Attorneys-General of Virginia, South Carolina and Texas described the decision as “another unwarranted invasion of state and municipal rights”. Governor Griffin, of Georgia, promised that his state would oppose this “overt usurpation of the liberties of the people.”

Segregation on inter-state buses was described by the Supreme Court as unconstitutional in 1946, but it was only last November that the inter-state commerce commission ordered that segregation should cease on all inter-state transport and in waiting rooms used by inter-state travellers.
