Reflections of the Little Rock Nine 1957–2017
“Reflections of the Little Rock Nine 1957–2017” concludes the first anniversary celebration of the National Museum of African American History and Culture. The Little Rock Nine was the name given to the nine students who bravely integrated Little Rock’s Central High School in the fall of 1957.
This program will honor the tremendous courage and sacrifice of those students and their families 60 years ago and acknowledge the great achievements in their careers. Jackie Trescott, formerly of the Washington Post, will moderate a discussion with surviving members of the group as they share the circumstances and decisions that that led them to enter the doors of Central High School on September 25, 1957 and the lasting impact of this experience. Interested media please RSVP.
