About this book

Students and faculty members who went through the desegregation crisis of this memorable time recall events and personal feelings as they tried to avoid the outside interruptions while getting an education.


Much has been said and written about the Little Rock Nine, who have also shared their memories through the years. And the students who protested and caused problems have also had their forum. Now, this book presents the third side of the story as told by those in the vast majority of students and faculty whose goal was to stay focused and get an education while history was being made all around them.
