  • 2, 4, 6, 8! We don't ain't gonna intergrate!!!
  • I'll get the Airborne NG on it!
  • After getting accepted into the school, the kids finally had their first day. Arriving to Little Rock Central High School, the 9 were greeted by an angry mob. The violence was so bad they were sent back home for their own safety.
  • Weeks later, the kid went back to Central High. There was now a team of the Arkansas National Guard that was sent by the Governor Faubus. Yet, they didn't even let the 9 kids go in the school. They barred them from entering.
  • Then on September 24, 1957, President Dwight D. Eisenhower ordered units of the U.S. Army's 101st Airborne Division into the high school. He also federalized the Arkansas National Guard. He delivered a powerful speech to the nation. His words: "Mob rule cannot be allowed to override the decisions of courts."
  • The next day, under federal troop escort, the LR9 made it inside for their first day of school. The Airborne only stayed for one month. When the Airborne were with the 9, they felt completely safe.
  • With the Airborne Guard gone, the Arkansas National Guard came bad treated them unfairly. The LR9 had assigned guards to walk them to class. The kids endured physical and verbal abuse. Minnijean Brown even ended up getting expelled for calling a girl "white trash" after she hit her with her purse.
  • The following year, 2 more of the Little Rock 9 students left Little Rock High. Carletta Walls and Jefferson Thomas graduated from Central High. While the rest of the students graduated from different high school. Many of the 9 received numerous awards such as: NAACP and Congressional Gold Medal.
