A newspaper article from The Nashville Tennessean dated April 10, 1960, found on page one and page six-A, column three. Negroes reject the biracial committee's partial integration proposal and decide to resume demonstrations. In separate statements, both students and merchants express their objections to the committee's proposal. The article includes a photograph of Diane Nash, a Fisk University student and chairman of the student protest group and the Reverend Kelly Smith, pastor of the First Baptist Church and president of the Nashville Christian Leadership council.
