S2 Ep. 2 The 65th Anniversary of Little Rock Nine
65 years ago, on September 24th, 1957, Little Rock Central High School was integrated. A process, one that began more than three years earlier with the United States Supreme Court’s unanimous decision in Brown v. Board of Education, finally reached its initial goal…thanks in part to the invocation of a law that was 150 years old. Coming up, we’ll hear from special guest Brian Schwieger, Chief of Interpretation at the Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site, as he shares the story of the integration of the school on what will be the 65th anniversary of the historical event this month.
