This chapter focuses on the massive resistance against desegregation in Little Rock, Arkansas. It begins with a description of the efforts of organizations such as the Mother's League of Central High and the Capital Citizens' Council to oppose desegregation. It then discusses how in Arkansas, the rhetoric on race, resistance, and violence first emerged in the small northeastern town of Hoxie, where school officials announced the integration of schools in 1955. The chapter then considers how massive resistance in Little Rock differed from those in other parts of the South.

Keywords:   segregation, desegregation, integration of schools, Central High, Capital Citizens' Council
