As a black woman who was a feminist before the term was invented, Daisy Bates refused to accept her assigned place in society.  Daisy Bates: First Lady of Little Rock tells the story of her life and public support of nine black students who registered to attend the all-white Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, which culminated in a constitutional crisis - pitting a president against a governor and a community against itself.  Unconventional, revolutionary, and egotistical, Daisy Bates reaped the rewards of instant fame, but paid dearly for it. 

 

 

This event is free and open to the public.  Presented in partnership with ITVS.
