The St. Louis County Library’s Black History Celebration presents the 2023 Frankie Freeman Inspirational Lecture Civil Rights Leader Carlotta Walls LaNier, author of “A Mighty Long Way: My Journey to Justice at Little Rock Central High School.” When 14-year-old Carlotta Walls walked up the stairs of Little Rock Central High School on September 25, 1957, she and eight other black students only wanted to make it to class. But the journey of the “Little Rock Nine,” as they came to be known, would lead the nation on an even longer and much more turbulent path, one that would challenge prevailing attitudes, break down barriers, and forever change the landscape of America. For Carlotta, simply getting through the door of her high school involved angry mobs and racist elected officials. But entry was simply the first of many trials. Carlotta Walls LaNier’s engrossing memoir is a testament not only to the power of a single person to make a difference but also to the sacrifices made by families and communities that found themselves a part of history. Books available from Left Bank Books.
