Little Rock Nine

In 1957 nine brave African American students dared to be the first students of color to go to what had always been a white school. Though the schools were supposed to be desegregated by law, there was a lot of resistence to the idea, and the nine students were given a very unpleasant reception. Readers who are interested in this topic might like to look at the Civil Rights Movement feature.
