Educating Students About Breaking a Barrier to Education


You might not have heard the name "Carlotta Walls LaNier," but she is an important and courageous figure in our country's history. In 1957, she was one of nine people to become the first black students to stand up to angry mobs and National Guard troops to attend Little Rock's Central High School in Arkansas. LaNier is now 71, and she is helping City College and other students to appreciate the Civil Rights movement and what it stood for. "My intent is for them to understand why they sit in a classroom with other people who don't look like them, to understand some of the historical piece that they don't necessarily get from their history class or civics class . . ." she said.
