Little Rock Central High School
President Clinton speaks at the 40th anniversary of desegregation of Little Rock Central High School

A very  historic high school in Little Rock.  Almost 60 years ago there was a major integration conflict. On the morning of September 23, 1957, nine African-American teenagers held the line against an angry mob protesting integration in front of Little Rock's Central High School. As the students met their new classmates for the first time inside the school, outside violence escalated and the Little Rock police removed the Nine from the school for their safety. The next day, President Dwight D. Eisenhower ordered the U.S. Army's 101st Airborne Division into Little Rock to escort the nine students into the school.
