What Happened due to The Little Rock 9

The students had to overcome many obstacles while trying to integrate into a all white school. First there were many kids that were bullying them because of the color of their skin and being racist to them. To overcome this obstacle the students would just put their heads down and get through it. What the did 60 years ago changed the way we go to school now. Now we go to school with many different races throughout it and we are all equal no matter what race we are or what religion we practice.

Now we have schools with many different races.

Modern Event Like The Little Rock 9

The women rights act was similar to The Little Rock 9. It was similar because the women didn't have the right to vote but they fought and protested, just like how african americans fought an protested to end segregation everywhere.
