Daisy Bates

Civil Rights leader and journalist Daisy Bates is an unsung hero of the movement because although people were fighting for equality, women still came after men. Daisy is one of the people responsible for the "Little Rock Nine" and, due to her influence and contribution to the Civil Rights Movement, is the only public figure that wasn't an elected official to have laid in state in Little Rock, Arkansas, after her death in 1999.
