School Desegregation and the Story of the Little Rock Nine
Through the 1950s, segregation was a way of life in the Deep South. But in 1957, after the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the case of Brown V. Board of Education, nine courageous African-American students, the Little Rock Nine, prepared to integrate Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. Facing bitter racism, these nine students began the turbulent path toward integration and made a giant step in the civil rights movement.
