A collection of twenty-five photographs of desegregation and subsequent violence and protests in Little Rock, with twenty-two of the group showing events relating to the Little Rock Nine, two showing Steven Fitts, a white child who was enrolled in a segregated all-Black school in Little Rock, and one showing a student at the all-Black Horace Mann school in 1957. The images of the conflict, particularly of the National Guard being called out by Governor Orval Faubus to prevent the students from attending, and the efforts by Eisenhower to nationalize the Arkansas National Guard to undo Faubus’s actions, were among the most high-profile and influential coverage of the fallout of Brown vs. Board of Education.
