September 18, 2017

Little Rock entered the national spotlight in September of 1957 when nine African American students attempted to integrate the all-white Central High School. This exhibit allows visitors to peer into the Integration Crisis with press photographs that document the historic events of September 1957. Editorial cartoons emphasize the focus of national media attention on Governor Faubus’s actions surrounding desegregation in Little Rock.

Remembering the Little Rock Central High Crisis invites viewers to explore press materials that chronicled the desegregation of Central High and recorded it for posterity.
