50th anniversary of the Little Rock Desegregation

Fifty years ago Little Rock High School in Arkansas was in the news as Federal troops were called in to enforce school desegregation. One great source to use in researching this event (and many others too) might be Facts on File. This source is a reference news source that goes back to the 1940s and has been online for a few years now.

Excellent, objective reporting, careful inclusion of dates, places, links to related articles etc. make this a very informative site.
