Little Rock Nine

Little Rock: The Little Rock Nine were nine African-Americans who were going to a Central High School which is in Little Rock, Arkansas starting 1957. This was especially controversial because the governor, Orval Faubus, who was for segregation did not follow federal laws and prohibited the nine from entering the school. Eisenhower deployed the 101st Airborne Division to safely escort the students to the school and keep them safe inside. (Akash)
