Iliteracy Colors Outrage In a Small (Alabama) Town

From the Sunday August 12 "Birmingham News"
By David Nichols
From AL.COM-Bham News- On Christmas Eve 1980, Montevallo, a quaint, college town of 4,000 residents, awoke to the news of a gruesome murder of one of its own: an elderly, highly respected woman and widow of a former dean of Alabama College (University of Montevallo). Within hours, suspects were in custody - two young black men who grew up in this college community: a community with two distinct cultures divided by race, social, economic and residential lines of demarcation. There was a silent yet widespread sense of outrage among folks, both black and white.
