LR 50 years after



A city commission announced the schedule of events -- with many details still to come -- for a week's worth of activities surrounding the 50th anniversary of the Little Rock school crisis.

You can keep up to date by checking the websiite,

One thing you need to know now is that Aug. 10 is the deadline to make reservations for a ticket for the main event -- the commemoration ceremony at 10 a.m. Sept. 25 on the front lawn of Central High School. A speakers lineup is not final yet. (Where's G.W.?)

Note, too, that events related to that momentous year are already underway -- the Horace Mann High exhibit at the Capitol currently, for example -- and will continue until well after the day marking the desegregation of the high school with protection  of federal troops.
