Commemorative Coin Honors Little Rock 9


Recommended Posts

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Fifty years ago, nine black students faced down a mob to integrate Little Rock Central High School. Now, they are being honored on a commemorative silver coin.


The U.S. Mint introduced the coin Saturday at the NAACP's Daisy Bates Education Summit, which pays tribute to the Arkansas NAACP leader who served as adviser to the Little Rock Nine.
