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

By Melba Pattillo Beals

n 1957, nine African-American students became the first to integrate Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. Beals's memoir details the daily harassment, name-calling, and physical attacks to which she could not respond. Hearing Pitts passionately deliver the epithets hurled at Beals and her eight fellow students heightens the visceral, personal impact of this classic work.
