In 1951, Carlotta Walls Lanier was one of the nine African-American students to integrate Little Rock High School, and the first to earn a diploma. Here she provides a firsthand account of her experiences - including the bombing that rocked her home, the constant threats she and her classmates faced, and the pressure and bullying her parents endured.

"A worthy contribution to the history of civil rights in America." (Publishers Weekly)
Ms Lanier's story exceeded my expectations. I cried with her and rallied behind as she told her story. After hearing her story I am filled with gratitude for the sacrifice she and her comrades made for me. Thank you Ms Lanier!
