In April, AHPP's "Sandwiching in History" tours the Daisy Bates House in Little rock. Join us for this live and in-person tour on Friday, April 7, at noon!
The Daisy Bates House is nationally significant for its role as the meeting place for the Little Rock Nine, their supporters, and reporters during the 1957 Little Rock Central High School desegregation crisis. The house is also important for its association with Daisy Lee Gatson Bates, equal rights activist and mentor to the Little Rock Nine. Daisy Bates was a driving force in the effort to integrate Central High School in 1957 and thus played an integral role in the first test of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1954 ruling in Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, KS.
