On September 25, 1954, nine black students made history by enrolling at Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. The struggles of these black teens, who faced harassment, fear, and hatred during desegregation, are chronicled in a robust digital exhibit curated by the Center for Arkansas History and Culture. "Confronting the Crisis: The Legacy of Little Rock Central High School" features a historic timeline of Central High School's desegregation, a media gallery of images and artifacts, sample lesson plans and teaching ideas, and oral histories from the key participants, including those nine brave students who changed history.
