Carlotta Walls LaNier of the Little Rock Nine

Carlotta Walls LaNier

Carlotta Walls LaNier, one of the Little Rock 9, shares her experiences integrating Central High School in the 1950s. Four weeks before graduation, her home was bombed. She recalls, "I got up that very next morning after my home was bombed and I went back to school because if I had not gone, they would have felt like they had won. And I graduated. I am the only female of the Little Rock Nine to participate in graduation exercise at Little Rock Central High School."
