Little Rock Nine and Daisy Bates

As president of the Arkansas NAACP Daisy Bates coordinated the efforts to integrate Little Rock's public schools after the Supreme Court's Brown v. Board of Education decision outlawed segregated public schools in 1954. She is shown here second from the right in the top row with the nine African-American students who were admitted to Little Rock's Central High School for the 1957-1958 school year. In 1962, Bates published her memoir of the Little Rock crisis, The Long Shadow of Little Rock.
