SummaryAdd a Summary
Describes the events surrounding the 1957 Little Rock Central High School Integration by Melba Pattillo Beals, a student in "The Little Rock Nine".
Author Melba Pattilo Beals was just 16 in 1957, but her young age didn’t stop her from becoming a “warrior” on the front lines of the American civil rights movement, when she was one of nine teens chosen to integrate Little Rock Central High School. The integration was indeed, a battle. Melba was taunted, threatened and even attacked – more than once. Through it all, she refused to give up … and Warriors Don’t Cry is her inspiring – and true – story.
