February is Black History Month

February is Black History Month.  This important focal event presents a special opportunity to recognize the bold and daring achievements of African American women.

Over fifty years ago, the doors of Little Rock's Central High School became gates of change, when on September 4, 1957, nine African American students came to school for class -- for the first time.  Turned away by Arkansas National Guard soldiers under orders from the Governor, the students finally entered safely three weeks later when the President of the United States sent the 101st Airborne to enforce the Supreme Court's desegregation rulings.

One of the 2016 Honorees, Civil Rights activist, Daisy Bates gave the nine students (two boys and seven girls) the information, encouragement, and support they needed to enroll in Central High School.  When the governor resorted to closing the schools in Little Rock to prevent integration, it was the women of the "Women's Emergency Committee to Open Our Schools" who with daring courage organized the effort to open the schools and in so doing changed themselves and the community.

The historic events of the integration of Central High School and the re- opening of all of Little Rock's schools a year after the governor closed them are quintessential women's history. Women's bold actions made both events possible.
