Meet Daisy Bates!

Daisy Bates was an African American civil rights activist and newspaper publisher who documented the battle to end segregation in Arkansas. As the head of the NAACP’s Arkansas branch, Bates played a crucial role in the fight against segregation. In 1954, the United States Supreme Court declared that school segregation was unconstitutional in the landmark case known as Brown v. Board of Education. Even after that ruling, African American students who tried to enroll in white schools were turned away in Arkansas. Bates and her husband chronicled this battle in their newspaper. In 1957, she helped nine African American students to become the first to attend the all-white Central High School in Little Rock, who became known as the Little Rock Nine. Bates’ home became the headquarters for the battle to integrate Central High School and she served as a personal advocate and supporter to the students. With U.S. soldiers providing security, the Little Rock Nine left from Bates’ home for their first day of school on September 25, 1957. Bates remained close with the Little Rock Nine, offering her continuing support as they faced harassment and intimidation from people against desegregation. Three years later, her account of the school integration battle was published as The Long Shadow of Little Rock. For her career in social activism, Bates received numerous awards, including an honorary degree from the University of Arkansas. She is best remembered as a guiding force behind one of the biggest battles for school integration in the nation’s history.

02/03/2023

Meet Amelia Boynton Robinson!

Amelia Boynton Robinson was a civil rights pioneer who championed voting rights for African Americans. Amelia Boynton's earliest activism included holding Black voter registration drives in Selma, Alabama from the 1930s through the '50s. In 1964, she became both the first African American woman and the first female Democratic candidate to run for a seat in Congress from Alabama. The following year, she helped lead a civil rights march during which she and her fellow activists were brutally beaten by state troopers. The event, which became known as Bloody Sunday, drew nationwide attention to the civil rights movement. In 1990, Boynton was awarded the Martin Luther King Jr. Medal of Freedom.
