For this Throwback Thursday moment, we recognize the North Little Rock Six, the six young men who attempted to desegregate North Little Rock High School in 1957. Integration did not occur in the NLRSD until the 1964-1965 school year, beginning with first and second grade students. Finally, twenty black students entered North Little Rock High School in the fall of 1966, in which five black students graduated in the following spring. #TBT #NLR Photo Courtesy: North Little Rock History Commission
