Summary
When 14-year-old Carlotta Walls walked up to Little Rock Central High School on September 25, 1957, she and eight other black students only wanted to make it to class. However, the journey of the "Little Rock Nine" would lead the nation on an even longer and much more turbulent path, one that would challenge prevailing attitudes, break down barriers, and forever change America. Descended from a line of proud black landowners and businessmen, Carlotta was raised to believe that education was the key to success. After Brown v. Board of Education, the teenager volunteered to be among the first black students, of whom she was the youngest, to integrate nearby Central High School. Getting through the door was only the first of many trials. This memoir is not only a testament to the power of one to make a difference but also of the sacrifices made by families and communities that found themselves a part of history
