Little Rock Nine

April 25, 2012 Posted by David Merritt No Comments


They were nine African-American teens who in 1957 wanted to go to the best high school, the all-white Central High, in Little Rock, Ark. It took an order from President Dwight Eisenhower and the protection of the Screaming Eagles of the 101st Airborne to get them inside. These nine heroes were willing to step forward and in doing so, altered the course of history. – via Marquette Magazine
