  1. This was an eye opening book for me I hope to read about this subject I am proud though that my Dad was one of the paratroopers of the 101st Airborne Division who were sent to Little Rock to protect Little Rock Nine.


  2. Really admire Daisy Bates for her courageous life and her contribution to civil rights progress in the early part of the movement Her story as recounted in this book is compelling if a bit precious in parts An incredible story nonetheless.


  3. How long How long Daisy Bates questions How long will racial inequality last in the United States Mrs Bates has since passed, but in 2012 evidence that this country still has miles to go remains.This story of the Little Rock Nine compliments other memoirs, notably that of Melba Patillo Beals, and is told from the perspective of an adult woman experiencing the persecution of the forced integration of Central High School.I really enjoyed the explanation of each student as well as the unabashed, te [...]


  4. I was reading this as background research for a graduate school paper, and kept getting sucked in by the story I would definitely recommend this book to anyone studying the Brown v Board decision, the Little Rock crisis, or just the Civil Rights movement or the NAACP in the 1950s She tells the story with an excellent narrative voice and I was constantly left short of breath, thick tears in my throat I think it made it all the stronger for me that I read it right after I read Virgil Blossom s mem [...]


  5. I read this years ago and really enjoyed it Because of an upcoming event at my local library, I got a digital copy of her book and now it s in my hands What kind of crushed me is her way of watching that man who had a hand in killing her mother That was compelling I liked to feel that God put them on the path of each other for a reason So this man can see what he s caused, and she can face her mother s killer But finding out about that did something inside her that just turned ugly for her a chi [...]


  6. really dissapointed to give this only 2 stars i love daisy bates and her story, but this book is just not written very well i would still say it is one of my favorite books, but purely b c of my admiration for her.




  7. A powerful book Mrs Bates describes her life with honest facts that shed light on the not so subtle reality of Jim Crow She does not try to manipulate the reader As a native of Little Rock, I found the book to be historically significant and even though it was written in the 60s, I would recommend it to anyone as a way to better understand the daily steps that we can all take to improve civility for all mankind.


  8. Heartbreaking and powerful Interesting to read a different perspective an adult helping on the Little Rock High School integration in 1957, in Arkansas, USA, comparing it to A Mighty Long Way and Warriors Don t Cry written by two of the students While the writing isn t that complex, the subject matter is compelling and inspiring.


  9. Although the content was good of the history of the Little Rock Nine of whom Mrs Bates was the advisor and daily chaperone whom the nine studied with each day, the writing of Mrs Bates could have used polish This short book was lagging in several places The best part of the content was Mrs Bates description of each of the students and how they were able to withstand the disgrace of attending an all white school, both teachers and students.2 2 2018


  10. An easy to read format about a subject that wasn t all that pleasant to read about It s hard to believe the events described herein actually occurred in America just over half a century ago For that reason, and others too, I would definitely recommend this book.
