Imagine showing up for your first day of high school only to be greeted by armed troops and angry mobs. In the second installment of our special 2-part episode, we travel back to 1950’s Arkansas to hear the story of The Little Rock 9 — a group of courageous African American teenagers who challenged the status quo and made history in the process. Featuring Carlotta Walls LaNier.
