Summary
While campaigning for office, Alabama governor George Wallace vowed to personally stand at the door of the University of Alabama to block integration. When he fulfilled this pledge in 1963, President John F. Kennedy federalized the Alabama National Guard and ordered him to step aside to allow two African-American students to register. While this was a victory for the civil rights movement, Governor Wallace continued to protest racial desegregation of the state's elementary and high schools
