Why order this Silver 2007-P Little Rock Central High School Desegregation Dollar?
The Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas Supreme Court decision declared segregated schools to be unconstitutional. Three years later, the issue still inflamed passions, particularly in Little Rock, Arkansas. Gov. Orval Faubus prevented students from entering the school, but President Dwight D. Eisenhower intervened to ensure that nine African-American students could enroll. This commemorative proof was issued to mark a half century from that important moment in the civil rights movement.
Powerful Students and Soldiers Design by Richard Masters
Obverse: The obverse design features armed soldiers escorting students as they walk to school. It was created by Richard Masters and sculpted by Charles L. Vickers. "DESEGREGATION IN EDUCATION" and "2007" are inscribed below the image. "LIBERTY" and "IN GOD WE TRUST" are inscribed along the rim.
