Little Rock tells the riveting true story of the Little Rock Nine, the first black students to attend their city’s formerly segregated central high school three years after the Brown vs. Board of Education Supreme Court decision ruled separating students based on race was unconstitutional. What began as their quest for a better education soon became a national crisis, igniting the passions of a divided country and sparking a historic fight for justice in the Jim Crow south.
