At first, there were huge protests and violence to stop the kids but that still did not work. After that, the state called in the National Guard to keep the kids out but the kids became so popular in the news that the president sent in the actual Army to protect the kids and keep the rioters out. 5 years after that was a big step for the University of Mississippi because their first black student was admitted in 1962.
