On September 17th, four college students (Rudy Lombard, Cecil Carter, Oretha Castle Haley, and Sydney Goldfinch, described in the United States Supreme Court Opinion as "three Negro students and one white student") entered the McCrory Five and Ten Cent Store in New Orleans on Canal Street. They sat down at a refreshment counter and were refused service. Although no sign so indicated, the management operated the counter on a segregated basis, serving only white patrons. The restaurant manager, believing that the "unusual circumstance" of Negroes sitting at the counter created an "emergency," asked the petitioners to leave, and when they did not do so, ordered that the counter be closed. Despite no disturbance, the police were called and all four students were arrested, charged and found guilty pursuant to the Louisiana criminal mischief statute. Their convictions were affirmed by the Louisiana Supreme Court. Counsel for the four were not deterred. On the strength of a brief written by Loyola Law professor Janet Mary Riley, and the advocacy and courage of Mr. Lolis Elie L'59, John "Jack" Nelson L'50, and others, the decision was reversed by the Supreme Court of the United States.
Dean Landrieu and BLSA invite you to join us and a distinguished panel for a discussion of this case, the role of Loyola in it, and its impact today.
