Honoring the Little Rock 9

50 years ago, 9 brave black children  took a stand for justice.  They endured racial taunts, were spat on and some even had rocks thrown at them.  These brave young children did more than most of us will ever do in our lifetime

Roberts, Carlotta Walls LaNier, Melba Patillo Beals, Elizabeth Eckford, Ernest Green, Gloria Ray Karlmark, Jefferson Thomas, Minnijean Brown Trickey, and Thelma Mothershed Wair

I thank you for your selfless acts that were apart of a movement which allowed me the freedom to obtain an education.
