About the film
"The Road to Little Rock" tells the story of nine teenagers and one judge who demonstrated the enduring qualities of honor, determination, self-validation, and responsibility. Students will witness the courage and convictions demonstrated by the "Little Rock Nine" and be introduced to U.S. Federal Judge Ronald N. Davies, from Fargo, who followed the law, and with moral compass defied political pressure requiring the school district in Little Rock to integrate "forthwith."
"The Road to Little Rock" tells the story of the desegregation decision made by Judge Davies from the judge's vantage point.
