On September 25th, 1957, in the wake of the 1954 “Brown v. Board of Education” Supreme Court decision, nine African American students were escorted by the U.S. Army into all-white Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. This past spring, American History TV toured Central High, now a National Historic Site, and heard Minnijean Brown Trickey’s story. She is one of the original nine. Her daughter, National Park Ranger Spirit Trickey, led the tour.
