Abstract:

Several commentators recall the era of complete segregation and the protests and violence that erupted when the Civil Rights Act was proposed. Eisenhower's statement that "There can be no second-class Americans" expressed his deeply held view, but he was warned that passing the Civil Rights Act would mean the end of his presidency. With Lyndon Johnson on his side, they waited until the vote in 1957 but still faced the problem of enforcing the law. The third section documents the events in Little Rock as African American high school students tried to enter an all-white school and were turned back by the Arkansas National Guard. Eisenhower's decision to send troops to enforce the new federal legislation was a ground-breaking precedent in the Civil Rights battleground.
