Little Rock, Arkansas

In 1957, nine Black students were the first to attend Little Rock, Arkansas’ Central High School. The district implemented the "Blossom Plan" that allowed Black students to transfer to any school where they would be the minority. In January 2013, a judge ruled the school district desegregated therefore ending state funding for the issue. (Photo: Lloyd Dinkins/Commercial Appeal /Landov)
