55 Years Ago



Little Rock Central High School will join the National Park Service this week in commemorating the 1957 desegregation of the school.  The campus, considered one of the most beautiful in the country at the time, gained national attention 55 years ago, when nine black students who became known as “The Little Rock Nine,” integrated the school, launching it and them into the center of the Civil Rights Movement. 


One of the most important events during the Civil Rights Movement occurred on September 24, 1957 when President Eisenhower ordered the 101st Airborne Division of the United States Army to Little Rock to escort the nine courageous students through the doors of Little Rock Central High.


Celebrating Hispanic Heritage: Sept. 15 - Oct. 15

Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.


The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on October 15. It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988, on the approval of Public Law



The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September 18, respectively. Also, Columbus Day or Día de la Raza, which is October 12, falls within this 30 day period.
