The Clinton Presidential Library Little Rock, Arkansas Last Tuesday, marked the 50th Anniversary of the Little Rock Nine. Former US President Bill Clinton and Sen. Hilary Rodham Clinton hosted the Opening Reception at the Clinton Presidential Library on Monday evening on September 24, 2007 to kick off the 50th Anniversary of the Little Rock Nine Ceremony.

The ensuing Little Rock Crisis, in which the students were initially prevented from entering the racially segregated school by Arkansas Governor Orval Faubus, and then attended after the intervention of President Dwight Eisenhower. These nine young people walked through a gantlet of jeering whites shouting venomous threats. This became an important event in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. Five decades later, fans swarmed them for autographs and pictures. News crews lobbed softball questions. In front of a crowd of 5,000 people, dignitaries including former president Bill Clinton and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, governors, congressmen and the mayor were on hand to laud their bravery in desegregating the school.
