Little Rock Nine scrapbook

 Collection — Box: 1
Identifier: MS-0934

Content Description

This scrapbook contains newspaper and magazine clippings primarily focused on school integration and the group of Black students known as the Little Rock Nine whose attendance at the white Central High School in Little Rock, AR. The end of the album contains clippings of various Black celebrities and public figures, such as Harry Belafonte and Jackie Robinson. The album appears to be part of a school assignment, as it lists both the creator's name, Constance Powell, as well as Powell's teacher's name, Rev. R. Dicks.

The album is one of at least two, according to the inscription on the inside of the album, but we only have the one album in our collection.
