As a teenager, Minnijean Brown Trickey entered the Civil Rights Movement-- and America's consciousness-- through the front doors of Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. As a member of the Little Rock Nine, and in defiance of the state, she took her rightful place in what had previously been a whites-only school. Walking past armed guards and an angry mob, and in front of a worldwide television audience, Minnijean helped desegregate public schools-- and change the course of education in America. Incredibly, this was just the beginning of her career as a social activist.
