Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Beautifully told story"

    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!

    "A Mighty Long Way"

    Courageous story told exceptionally well. This book should be a must read in every High School Social Study or History Class in the USA. We must not forget.
