New York Mayor Wagner Greets Black Students From Little Rock

 

Mayor Robert Wagner: Well, I’m delighted as Mayor of New York City and as a humble New Yorker, to have the opportunity to welcome these young men and women from Little Rock, to say we’re very proud that they’re in our city and very proud that they won this distinguished award. And they say that in their visit here, they’ll have an opportunity to see New York and what progress we have made. We realize that there are things yet to be done, but I feel confident that they will agree that, in the question of giving equal rights to all citizens, New York City stands in the forefront in the whole United States, and we’re going to keep battling to even greater, greater heights.
