The Dallas Express 1956-09-15

Description

This article was written nearly two weeks after the Mansfield Crisis. It approached the events in a moralistic tone, describing the actions by whites as contradictory to the Christian beliefs in which they held. Using quotes from the Bible, it displayed the conflict between the actions of the white Texans (from the mob to Governor Shivers) and the ideas behind Christianity. It finished the article with a condemnation of the Dallas News Editorial Department and their attempts to describe the events at Mansfield as not against the law.
