I think it should stay on the list. I knew of the integration in Little Rock, but I didn’t realize exactly what those students went through daily. You only ever hear of the part where the military had to escort them to school on their first day. You never hear of the abuse they endured throughout that year. It definitely stirred emotions while reading it.
