RUSSELLVILLE — One of the nine students who integrated Little Rock Central High School in 1957 is scheduled to speak at Arkansas Tech University in Russellville as part of Black History Month at the school.

The speech is sponsored by the Arkansas Tech Office of Student Services, the Arkansas Tech College of Arts and Humanities, and the Arkansas Tech Department of History and Political Science with support from the Arkansas Tech African-American Student Association and Tech's Omega Psi Phi chapter.

Green was one of the nine black students who integrated the Little Rock school. He has been awarded the Congressional Gold Medal.

punk47,

Why do you think that? If you had read the history of the times, you would understand how brave the Little Rock Nine were. I would love to hear him speak. He is part of history.
