Choices in Little Rock

HST 6210 3 Quarter Hours
Course Level CPS - Graduate
Description Explores the 1957 desegregation of Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. Traces the legal and personal struggles of African-Americans from Jim Crow America through the landmark Supreme Court decision on Brown v. Board of Education and, ultimately, to the courageous actions of nine young men and women determined to make desegregation a reality. Their efforts would lead to a crisis that historian Taylor Branch once described as “the most severe test of the Constitution since the Civil War.”
