Free Film March 27th! Daisy Bates: First Lady of Little Rock

HandsOn Southeast Georgia, Henderson Library, and the Peace Studies Faculty Learning Community of the Center for Teaching, Learning and Scholarship proudly co-sponsor the film Daisy Bates: First Lady of Little Rock in the Community Cinema Series. Watch Daisy Bates’ story for FREE in the Russell Union Tuesday March 27 at 6:30. 


As a black woman who was a feminist before the term was invented, Daisy Bates refused to accept her assigned place in society. Daisy Bates: First Lady of Little Rock tells the story of her life and public support of nine black students who registered to attend the all-white Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, which culminated in a constitutional crisis — pitting a president against a governor and a community against itself. Unconventional, revolutionary, and egotistical, Daisy Bates reaped the rewards of instant fame, but paid dearly for it.
