History has been silent, however, about the students who desegregated Little Rock's five public junior high schools--East Side, Forest Heights, Pulaski Heights, Southwest, and West Side--in 1961 and 1962. The First Twenty-Five gathers the personal stories of these students some fifty years later. They recall what it was like to break down long-standing racial barriers while in their early teens--a developmental stage that often brings emotional vulnerability. In their own words, these individuals share what they saw, heard, and felt as children on the front lines of the civil rights movement, providing insight about this important time in Little Rock, and how these often painful events from their childhoods affected the rest of their lives." -- Publisher's description"@en ;
