Today In History 
'Ernest Gideon Green made history on May 27, 1958, when he became the first Black student to graduate from the segregated  Little Rock's Central High School, following a school year that began with a Constitutional crisis and daily harassment. Persevering through, Green the only senior of the Little Rock Nine, in 1957 volunteered to transfer and desegregate Little Rock’s Central High School. Their mission was to give advanced educational opportunities to all students and they did.’
