The exterior of Little Rock Central High School in Little Rock, Ark. In 1957, Little Rock became the symbol of state resistance to integrating public schools when protesters backed by the governor tried to stop nine black students from entering the school and federal troops had to be sent in. Today the school is a National Historic Site. (Sept. 10, 2012) (Credit: AP\)
