Betsy Jacoway talked about her book, Turn Away Thy Son: Little Rock, the Crisis that Shocked a Nation, published by Free Press. Ms. Jacoway, a native of Little Rock, Arkansas, recounted the integration of Central High School in September of 1957. She described the 1957-59 desegregation crisis in great detail, focusing on the travails of the “Little Rock Nine,” the black students who integrated the school against great resistance. After her presentation she responded to audience members' questions.

This book was published to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of the integration of Central High School. close
