Despite Brown v. Board of Education, which found racial segregation in schools illegal, the integration of schools did not happen overnight. What is the name of the group of black students who were refused entry into a public school by governor Orval Faubus of Arkansas in 1957?
Answer Little Rock Nine
President Eisenhower sent in the Arkansas National Guard to escort the students into the school. This incident shows how, despite the 1954 ruling, the integration of schools was a slow and very difficult process. There are still inconsistencies in schools throughout the states today.
