(Plains, Georgia) Report on blacks in Plains, Georgia. Reporter notes early racial strife in county as well as present living conditions. Carter's part in community during racial trouble cited. Patterns of segregation still linger, but with few objections. [Leonard WRIGHT - says even though 2 are separate groups, there's no discrimination.] [Charles HICKS - says it's a way of life.] [Peggy HICKS - says integration not accepted all the way yet.] Effect of segregation on blacks economy and socially noted, yet blacks recognize white help as benefit.
