History

Built in 1927 at a cost of $1.5 million, Little Rock Senior High School, later to be renamed Little Rock Central High, was hailed as the most expensive, most beautiful, and largest high school in the nation. Its opening earned national publicity with nearly 20,000 people attending the dedication ceremony. The next two decades there were typical of those at most American high schools, but historic events in the 1950s changed education at Central High School and throughout the United States.

LRCHS was the focal point of the Little Rock Integration Crisis of 1957. Nine black students, known as the Little Rock Nine, were denied entrance to the school in defiance of the 1954 U.S. Supreme Court ruling ordering integration of public schools. This provoked a showdown between the Governor Orval Faubus and President Dwight D. Eisenhower that gained international attention.

On the morning of September 23, 1957, the nine black high school students faced an angry mob of over 1,000 whites protesting integration in front of Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. As the students were escorted inside by the Little Rock police, violence escalated and they were removed from the school. The next day, President Dwight D. Eisenhower ordered the 1,200-man 327th Airborne Battle Group of the U.S. Army's 101st Airborne Division from Fort Campbell to escort the nine students into the school. By the same order, the entire 10,000 Arkansas National Guard was federalized, to take them out of the hands of Governor Faubus. At nearby Camp Robinson, a hastily organized Task Force 153rd Infantry drew guardsmen from units all over the state. Most of the Arkansas Guard was quickly demobilized, but the ad hoc TF153Inf assumed control at Thanksgiving when the 327th withdrew, and patrolled inside and outside the school for the remainder of the school year.

This event, watched by the nation and world, was the site of the first important test for the implementation of the U.S. Supreme Court’s historic Brown v. Board of Education decision of 1954. Arkansas became the epitome of state resistance when the governor, Orval Faubus, directly questioned the authority of the federal court system and the validity of desegregation. The crisis at Little Rock's Central High School was the first fundamental test of the national resolve to enforce black civil rights in the face of massive southern defiance during the years following the Brown decision.

Little Rock Central High 40th Anniversary (896 words)
On September 2, the night before school was to start, Arkansas Governor Orval Faubus called out the state's National Guard to surround Little Rock Central High School and prevent any fl students from entering in order to protect citizens and property from possible violence by protesters he claimed were headed in caravans toward Little Rock.
Inside the school, the great majority of the 2,000 students, the faculty and the administration worked to put the law of the land into effect.
From a symposium on the historical perspective of the crisis at Central High to a birthday party for all the school's alumni to celebrate the 70th birthday of the magnificent building, the events of September 20-28, 1997, were exciting and memorable.
Reexamining Central High: American Memory and Social Reality (1717 words)
During the 1960s and 1970s, the Little Rock NAACP continued to fight for the complete desegregation of all the city schools, and by 1980 it had become apparent that the school system was rapidly turning majority fl as a result of white flight.
School officials pursued a variety of strategies to achieve greater racial balance, including the establishment of magnet programs in all-fl schools to entice white parents in enrolling their children there.
The city argued that because the outer school districts had not pursued racial desegregation as aggressively as Little Rock, they had become refuges for whites who did not want their children mixing with fl children and therefore moved out of the city, thereby placing the burden for racial desegregation on the city itself.
