American children once needed alarmed soldiers to escort them safely to the school house .Getting escorted to school by armed soldiers had to be a problem that the whites didn’t want them at their school. On September twenty-third in the late 1850’s African Americans entered Little Rock Central High School for the first time. Ignoring verbal abuse, threats from students and a crowd of whites that was standing outside of the school. The nine African Americans students started to tell their parents, even though there parents knew that them going to an all-white school was going to be a problem. They had known from the beginning that the whites didn’t want them at their school.
Several days later the Little Rock nine “returned back to the school, and entered through the side door so they can avoid the crowd of rowdy students and the press.” That same day they were found by more students whom “violently attacked them and innocent bystanders.” In 1958 the first African American, Ernest Green, graduated Little Rock Central High School, and the governor got “reelected and shut down all schools” in Little Rock, Arkansas because he did not want to integrate the schools of Little Rock, Arkansas. The legacy of The Little Rock Nine has set the bar for African American students who has to fight for equality at predominantly whites schools today. The schools cannot be legally segregated, but they can enforce their own rules to justify the way African Americans students present themselves. If an African American student attended school or class with an Afro, Dread Locks, or

In addition, people celebrate Banned Books Week in libraries or special events. Some books are banned in schools and libraries because they contain uncomfortable topics or offensive language; however, some people believe banned books are worth reading because they incorporate life lessons that students can learn from. First, To Kill A Mockingbird has been banned numerous times in different school systems. In 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, and 2016, it has been banned by parents due to the the uncomfortable use of the “N-word” or the books racism (Devoe).

In 1954 the Supreme Court decided to make a historic decision and made it unconstitutional to make public schools segregated. 3 years after segregation was banned the south was still not accepting of the new rule so when nine students in Little Rock, Arkansas tried to join the white high school they were not accepted. 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.

African-American, a word that hardly escaped my fellow students mouths, they 'd much rather call me a "Nigger" and a "slave" than anything else. Racism wasn 't only encountering me at school, but was happening when I "hit the town" people looked at me differently, the braced themselves when I came by. It hurt, it hurt a lot, more than you can imagine. Finally I arrived to my house, walking up the steps, I was greeted by my mother yelling "Oh Cavonté, thank god you 're safe, we tried to call you, something 's going on!" What she said alarmed me, I then a concerned look wiped across my face.
Little Rock Nine enrolled the beginning of the day the Arkansas National Guard 's turned away the students.
