Norfolk Mayor Paul Fraim said during a recent City Council meeting that a 2 acre park will be built near City Hall. The park will honor those who fought to end Massive Resistance and integrate the schools 50 years ago. The park is at least four years away as it will sit where the current Circuit Court buiding is located. Massive Resistance was the state's reaction to orders from federal courts to integrate public schools. At least 10,000 white students were barred from school and refer to themselves as the "lost class". The resistance consisted of serveral groups including the lost class, the Norfolk 17 and many others.
