The long shadow of Little Rock, a memoir by Daisy Bates ( Book )
4 editions published between 1962 and 1986 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
On September 3, 1957, Arkansas Gov. Orval Faubus called out the National Guard to surround Little Rock's all-white Central High School and prevent the entry of nine black students, challenging the Supreme Court's 1954 order to integrate all public schools. On September 25, Daisy Bates, an official of the NAACP in Arkansas, led the nine children into the school with the help of federal troops sent by President Eisenhower--the first time in 81 years that a president had dispatched troops to the South to protect the constitutional rights of black Americans. Bates's classic account of the Little Rock School Crisis couldn't be found on most bookstore shelves in 1962 and was banned throughout the South. In 1988, after the University of Arkansas Press reprinted it, it won an American Book Award.--From publisher description
