Digital Exhibit of a Historic Moment in the Civil Rights Movement
On September 25, 1954, nine black students made history by enrolling at Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. The struggles of those black students, who faced harassment, fear, and hatred during desegregation, are chronicled in a digital exhibit curated by the Center for Arkansas History and Culture. “Confronting the Crisis: The Legacy of Little Rock Central High School” features a historic timeline of Central High School’s desegregation, a media gallery of images and artifacts, and oral histories from the key participants, including those nine students who changed history. Educators will find free downloadable resources for teaching students about the facts of those days, the people behind the movement, and the legacy it left.
