LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Some of the students who were part of the integration of junior high schools in Little Rock will discuss their roles in desegregation efforts during an event later this month.
The students were among 25 black students who enrolled in junior high schools throughout the Little Rock School District in 1961 and 1962.
They will speak Feb. 21 during a panel discussion titled "Phase II: The Desegregation of Little Rock Public Schools." The discussion begins at 9 a.m. at the Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site.
The group includes Arkansas-Little Rock assistant professor LaVerne Bell-Tolliver, Judge Kathleen Bell, Henry Rodgers, Wilbunette Walls Randolph, Glenda Wilson, Dr. Kenneth Jones, and Judge Joyce Williams Warren.
