This chapter resumes the confrontation between Johns and Hawkins with the latter as the first witness at the Committee's first hearing, which focused on Hawkins’ suit to integrate UF. Hawkins was also the first of this book's subjects to defy the Johns Committee, thwarting its barratry strategy against the NAACP and continuing his lawsuit.
