Twenty original articles from the Wilmington Star News chronicling the events leading to and during the racial unrest centering around the three local high schools and the recent integration. Beginning about mid December 1970, and continuing throughout most of 1971, Wilmington became a national focal point of violence, burnings, looting, and magnet for outside organizers of boycotts, marches and demonstrations. Ten men and women were ultimately arrested and wrongly convincted of arson and conspiracy during the events that occurred at the time. The clippings cover the events of the time.
