The Legacy of Daisy Bates

Special Collections, University of Arkansas Libraries
Daisy Bates, a civil rights activist and mentor to the Little Rock Nine, the African-American students who desegregated Central High School in Little Rock.

Daisy Bates is a towering figure in Arkansas and U.S. history. The writer, mentor, activist and leader is the subject of this week's archive tour with Randy Dixon from the David and Barbara Pryor Center for Arkansas Oral and Visual History. We hear her voice and the voices of those who were inspired by her.

Kyle Kellams is KUAF's news director and host of Ozarks at Large.
