Little Rock School Crisis (1957)
In 1957 a federal judge ordered Little Rock, Arkansas, to enroll nine African Americans in the city’s Central High School. Segregationist Governor Orval Faubus used the National Guard to defy this order. Pressure from President Eisenhower and another federal court order convinced Faubus to remove the Guard, but a threatening crowd forced the African American students to flee the school. This, as well as rioting in the African American section of the city, caused Eisenhower to deploy the already-nationalized Guardsmen and to send in U.S. Army troops. The African American students, under military protection, attended school. Little Rock closed all its public schools the following year to prevent integration.
