But that afternoon, federal judge Ronald Davies issued a Little Rock that desegregation would continue as planned the next day. Eight arrived together, driven by Bates.
Therefore, Eckford arrived alone. One of the most enduring images from this day is a photograph of Eckford, alone with a notebook in her hand, stoically approaching the school as a crowd of hostile and screaming white students and adults surround her. Eckford later recalled that one of the women spat on her.
The image was printed and broadcast widely in the Little Rock States and abroad, bringing the Little Rock controversy to national and international attention.

Escorted by the troops, the Little Rock Nine attended their first full day of classes on September Numerous legal challenges to integration continued throughout the year, and Faubus repeatedly expressed his wish that the Little Rock Nine be removed from Central High.

Principal and Interest. When integration began on September 4,the Arkansas National Guard was called in to "preserve the peace". Originally at orders of the governor, they were meant to prevent the black students from entering due to claims that there was "imminent danger of tumult, riot and breach of peace" at the integration.
However, President Eisenhower issued Executive orderwhich federalized the Arkansas National Guard and ordered them to support the integration on September 23 of that year, after which they protected the African American students.
One of the plans created during attempts to desegregate the schools of Little Rock was by school superintendent Virgil Blossom. The initial approach proposed substantial integration beginning quickly and extending to all grades within a matter of many years.
McCulloch's brief. The second Little Rock of the plan would take place in and would open up a few junior high schools to a few black children. The final stage would involve limited desegregation of the city's grade schools at an unspecified time, possibly as late as Militant members like the Bateses opposed the plan on the grounds that it was "vague, indefinite, slow-moving and indicative of an intent to stall further on public integration.
This view was short lived, however. Changes were made to the plan, the most detrimental being a new transfer system that would allow students to move out of the attendance zone to which they were assigned. This lawsuit, along with a number of other factors contributed to the Little Rock School Crisis of Several segregationist councils threatened to hold protests at Central High and physically block the black students from entering the school.
The sight of a line of soldiers blocking out the students made national headlines and polarized the nation. Regarding the accompanying crowd, one of the nine students, Elizabeth Eckfordrecalled:. They moved closer and closer. Somebody started Little Rock. I tried to see a friendly face somewhere in the crowd—someone who maybe could help.
I looked into the face of an old woman and it seemed a kind face, but when I looked at her again, she spat on me. On September 9, the Little Rock School District issued a statement condemning the governor's deployment of soldiers to the school, and called for a citywide prayer service on September Even President Dwight Eisenhower attempted to de-escalate the situation by summoning Faubus for a meeting, warning him not to defy the Supreme Court's ruling.
Little Rock Wilson Mannthe mayor of Little Rock, asked President Eisenhower to send federal troops to enforce integration and protect the nine students. In September 24, Eisenhower invoked the Insurrection Act of to enable troops to perform domestic law enforcement. The president ordered the st Airborne Division of the United States Army —without its black soldiers, who rejoined the division a month later—to Little Rock and federalized the entire 10,member Arkansas National Guard, taking it out of Faubus's control.
By the end of Septemberthe nine were admitted to Little Rock Central High under the protection of the st Airborne Division and later the Arkansas National Guardbut they were still subjected to a year of physical and verbal abuse by many of the white students.
Melba Pattillo had acid thrown into her eyes  and also recalled in her book, Warriors Don't Cryan incident in which a group of white girls trapped her in a stall in the girls' washroom and attempted to burn her by dropping pieces of flaming paper on her from above. Another one of the students, Minnijean Brownwas verbally confronted and abused.
She said. I was one of the kids 'approved' by the school officials. We were told we would have to take a lot and were warned not to fight back if anything happened. One girl ran up to me and said, 'I'm so glad you're here. Won't you go to lunch with me today? Minnijean Brown was also taunted by members of a group of white male students in December in the school cafeteria during lunch.
She dropped her lunch, a bowl of chili, onto the boys and was suspended for six days. Two months later, after more confrontation, Brown was suspended for the rest of the school year. In the summer ofas the school year was drawing to a close, Faubus decided to petition the decision by the Federal District Court in order to postpone the desegregation of public high schools in Little Rock. Aaron case, the Little Rock School District, under the leadership of Orval Faubusfought for a two and a half year delay on de-segregation, which would have meant that black students would only be permitted into public high schools in January However, in Augustthe Federal Courts ruled against the delay of de-segregation, which incited Faubus to call together an Extraordinary Session of the State Legislature on August 26 in order to enact his segregation bills.
