Warriors Don't Cry: The Searing Memoir of the Battle to Integrate Little Rock's Central High

Warriors Don't Cry
February 2nd, 2014
An in depth account of the first year of integration at Central High School. I was shocked at the horrific behavior of students, teachers and other adults in this situation. I never knew the details of this historic event. Melba and the other students integrating, as well as their families, showed such immense bravery and conviction in the face of physical and emotional torture. I wonder how many of us could do it. Bless them and the few adults and students who did help them. The writing is not the best I've read, but the story is from the heart and we'll worth the read.
