Description

CinemAwareness: Daisy Bates: First Lady of Little Rock
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 – putting 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.
