Little Rock Nine
The Little Rock Nine were the nine African-American students involved in the desegregation of Little Rock Central High School. Their entrance into the school in 1957 sparked a nationwide crisis when Arkansas governor Orval Faubus called out the Arkansas National Guard to prevent the Nine from entering the school. American President Dwight D. Eisenhower responded by sending the National Guard units of the U.S. Army’s 101st Airborne Division to escort the Nine students into the school on September 25, 1957. The military presence remained for the duration of the school year.
