As a reminder, Monday September 25th marks the 60th anniversary of nine African American students being escorted into Little Rock, Arkansas’ Central High School. President Eisenhower ordered the 101st Airborne Division to ensure their safe passage after the landmark Brown v. Board of Education decision by the Supreme Court earlier that year.
We are proud to have Gloria Ray Karlmark as an Honorary Member of The American Club of Sweden, a “Little Rock Nine” member and longtime Stockholm resident. Like all from the
Nine, she has devoted her life to telling her story and educating others of the perils of bigotry and racism.
