Until 1957, two worlds existed in Little Rock, Arkansas: one for white Americans and another for African Americans. Whites and blacks went to separate schools, ate at separate restaurants, and even used separate drinking fountains. That year, the U.S. Supreme Court decided to end the laws that kept people apart. Nine black students agreed to attend Little Rock's all-white Central High School. But could they face angry mobs, threats, and violence? Would they have the courage to stay at Central High? In the back of this book, you'll find a script and instructions for putting on a reader's theater performance of this adventure. At our companion can download additional copies of the script plus sound effects, background images, and more ideas that will help make your reader's theater performance a success.
