'Long Story' covers school integration
Minnijean Brown Trickey, one of the first students to defy school segregation in the South, will be the guest for two shows on "Long Story Short with Leslie Wilcox."
Wilcox's interview with Trickey will air in two parts, at 7:30 tonight and June 3 on KHET/PBS.
In 1957, when Trickey and eight other black students enrolled at Little Rock Central High School, Gov. Orval Faubus sent the Arkansas National Guard to keep them out. President Eisenhower had to send Army troops to ensure "The Little Rock Nine" were admitted.
Today she is a teacher, lecturer and writer.
Her "Long Story Short" interview will also be available for download at www.pbshawaii.org/ourproductions/longstory.php. The show is also rebroadcast Sundays at 7 a.m. on radio station KUMU 94.7 and on KHET at 2:30 p.m.
