Account of My Participation in the Sit-ins
Statement of Hulda Beth Taylor
Greensboro, NC. 1963

(From the Hulda (Beth) Taylor Collection, Univ. North Carolina, Greensboro)

[See Mass Action in Greensboro for background information.]

White Guilford College student Hulda Taylor was among several Guilford students arrested during the Freedom Highways mass sit-in campaign of May, 1963. Originally founded by Quakers, in the mid-1960s Guildford still presented itself as a school that incorporated traditional Quaker values of equality and justice. In this statement, which appears to have been prepared for presentation to the campus Quaker religious service (Meeting), Hulda Taylor describes her participation in the sit-ins and questions Guilford's committment to its avowed ideals. (The statement is in PDF format as it was originally typed.)
