'Segregation Forever': A Fiery Pledge Forgiven, But Not Forgotten

Originally published on Mon January 14, 2013 5:17 pm

During his inaugural address on Jan. 14, 1963, newly elected Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace vowed "segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever."
Bettmann Corbis

Originally published on Mon January 14, 2013 11:25 am

BProud Photography Knopf
