This must-have volume explores the events surrounding the Little Rock Nine crisis. Collected essays provide the historical background, from sources such as the National Park Service and Dwight D. Eisenhower. Controversies are then explored, including whether President Eisenhower acted wisely in sending federal troops to Little Rock. After controversies are explained, readers are then presented with compelling first-hand accounts of the experience, by people who lived through it. Readers hear from notables such as Minnijean Brown Trickey, Thelma Mothershed Wair, and Elizabeth Eckford.
