Threads in our fabric, focus on African American History Month. During this powerful episode of Threads in Our Fabric we are transported back to the late 1950s in Little Rock Arkansas. The Little Rock Nine was a group of nine African American students enrolled in Little Rock Central High School in 1957. Their enrollment was followed by the Little Rock Crisis, in which the students were initially prevented from entering the racially segregated school by Orval Faubus, the Governor of Arkansas. They then attended after the intervention of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The HENDERSON’S share what it was to be African American is the height of the civil rights moment. Elder Henderson shared how as a little girl she drank out of a water fountain at Walgreens. How she was attacked. She and her elderly grandmother were thrown out. This is a must listen. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/Momentsofgrace/support
