Elizabeth and Hazel: Two Women of Little Rock
Books at the Bar

Wednesday, February 29, 2012 6:00 pm-8:00 pm

Event has expired. Registration for this event is no longer available.

It was no ordinary first day of school on September 4, 1957; Elizabeth Eckford and Hazel Bryan wore special outfits for the occasion. It was an historic moment – the first day of integration at Arkansas’ Little Rock Central High School. The photograph of these teenagers has been a haunting reminder of the suffering endured by civil rights’ pioneers. African American Elizabeth can be seen stoically attempting to enter school while white student, Hazel, relentlessly taunts her. Margolick’s book uses that iconic picture to chronicle the aftermath of one of the era’s most memorable images. Join us for a reception, book discussion, and signing.

Speaker: DAVID MARGOLICK, Author, Elizabeth and Hazel: Two Women of Little Rock

 

Event Location: 42 West 44th St. (bet. 5th & 6th Ave.)
