Little Rock Nine

Somehow, the Little Rock Nine would be undeterred, and their incredible courage and determination would transform our educational system and our country. Carlotta Walls Lanier, the youngest of the group, chronicles it all in A Mighty Long Way: My Journey to Justice at Little Rock Central High School and shares her incredible story firsthand.
