Little Rock Nine Public Radio International w/carlotta walls


Special Version includes interview with Carlotta Walls LaNier one of the Little Rock Nine

On September 25, 1957, nine black students entered racially segregated Central High School in Little Rock, Ark. Their goal was to receive the same quality education afforded their white counterparts. Who were the history-making, tradition-breaking Little Rock Nine? Most Americans only knew of the social and political upheaval their efforts caused. They did not know Ernest Green, Elizabeth Eckford, Jefferson Thomas, Dr. Terrence Roberts, Carlotta Walls LaNier, Minnijean Brown Trickey, Gloria Ray Karlmark, Thelma Mothershed-Wair and Melba Pattillo Beals. Using radio drama and interview, host Donnie L. Betts profiles these extraordinary students and in the process examines why they succeeded where other did not. He talks at length with Carlotta Walls LaNier, a member of the Little Rock Nine, considers whether American schools are now re-segregating and features music by jazz great Rene Marie.
