Persuasive Without the Little Rock Nine, the Civil Rights Movement would have taken more time in integrating schools. The nine Black students, that later earned the name the Little Rock Nine, took part in an all White school. “ In 1957, the Little Rock School Board finally agreed to desegregate grades ten through twelve. It was going to occur at Central High School.” (Levine 42) Some people may argue that the Little Rock Nine was such a small impact that if it didn’t even happen, it wouldn’t change anything. That may be true but ever small impact stacks up and eventually those stacks helped Civil Rights Movement succeed. Biography Ernest Green was a Senior in High school during the Civil Rights Movement.
