Collection Description (CRHP): 'Wit, Will, and Walls: The Betty Kilby Fisher Story' is a short documentary on the story of Betty Kilby Fisher, a 13-year-old who was the plaintiff in the 1958 case to desegregate Warren County, VA Schools. Uncut videotaped interviews used for this film are included in this collection: ones of Betty Kilby Fisher and scholars who spoke about her, including Virginia history, women's studies, and civil rights scholars.
