Sheila Arnold as Daisy Bates, Civil Rights Activist and Arkansas NAACP President
Daisy Bates was the backbone of the "Little Rock Nine.” In this moving historical representation, Sheila Arnold tells the story of the woman determined to help integrate the Little Rock, Arkansas schools as well as overcome the severe opposition she, and the students, were subjected to on a daily basis. Daisy talks about her life before becoming NAACP president, atrocities she has seen committed, her relationship with Thurgood Marshall, and the infamous academic year, 1957-1958, when Central High School in Little Rock was to be integrated and the Federal Troops were called in by President Eisenhower. You will not forget meeting this strong, determined woman once you hear her stories.
