Civil Rights Memorial Sculpture of the Little Rock NineFacing law and social custom that defined them as second tier citizens, the Little Rock Nine, taking their cue from the ever expanding struggle for civil rights, opted to define themselves quite differently. With the help of stalwart parents, other family members and those in the community who shared their vision, this group of young people came to understand the reality of their time, but chose to believe in a reality yet to come. It was, in part, this focus that allowed them to suffer the indignities heaped upon them by those who firmly believed in the laws of equality. With the support of countless others around the globe, and especially the guidance of L.C. and Daisy Bates, the Little Rock Night walked through the doors of Central High School. Their act of courage opened doors symbolically all over segregated America.
