Little Rock Girl 1957: How a Photograph Changed the Fight for Integration
By Shelley Tougas
Review By Christina Lewis

"Nine African American students made history when they defied a governor and integrated an Arkansas high school in 1957. It was the photo of one of the nine trying to enter the school - a young girl being taunted, harassed and threatened by an angry mob - that grabbed the worlds attention and kept its disapproving gaze on Little Rock, Arkansas." Despite a federal order to integrate Central High School Governor Orval Faubus called in the National Guard and prevented the nine students from entering the building. Newspaper photographer Will Counts captured the photo on the cover of a girl's hatred sneer in the mob that made history. This book chronicles the fight for integration and civil rights. (Ages 10 and up)
