Additional Details

Three very unusual survivals from the period of the integration of Little Rock High School by Daisy Bates and others. One is an appeal to the parents of the all white student body to vote for replacing the school board with people who would stand fast on segregation; another is a little card, one of many circulated among the students that bore rhymes and jokes about Daisy Bates, et al. and the third is a drawing of Little Rock High.
