Original caption: On September 25, 1957, federal troops escort nine black children into previously all-white Little Rock Central High School in Little Rock, AK. Form this moment the face of the nation was permanently changed and through the long and troubled 1960s America searched its soul to find answers to the racial problems that besieged it. President Eisenhower was compelled to enforce the Supreme Court’s public school desegregation decision with troops after the integrity of the court was challenged by Arkansas Governor Orval Faubus.
