Little Rock Nine

The Little Rock Nine were a signifigant group of African American because they started a revolution. They were also brave to attend an all-white high school, and spread equality all throughout America.

The outcomes of the case spread equality throughout our country. Integration was voted against and eventually led to equal black and white rights. Also, several of the Little Rock Nine went on to distinguished careers.

1. The governor ordered 270 National Guard troops to move into the Little Rock Central High School.

2. The 9 students did not show up on the first day of school on the advice of the schoolboard for their safety.

3. 150 policemen were on stand-by for protection of everyone from a larger body of thugs. The police helped intercede the two groups.
