Stamp to Recognize 1957 Crisis at Central High School

November 24th, 2004

Little Rock's Central High School will be the subject of a postage stamp next year that will recognize the 1957 desegregation crisis.

The stamp is part of a U.S. Postal Service stamp series that will mark ten civil rights milestones.

Nine black students known as The Little Rock Nine fought to integrate Little Rock Central High School in 1957. They were the first black students to attend the school.

The stamps will be available next year.
