Daisy Bates (1914-1999) was a pivotal civil rights activist and the guide, mentor, and advisor for the Little Rock Nine. When the Supreme Court ruled that segregation among schools was no longer constitutional, the state of Arkansas resisted the ruling. Daisy Bates advocated for integration and helped identify the nine students who would be the first African-American students to attend Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. Throughout her life, she continued to fight for civil rights, working for the Democratic National Committee in Washington and incubating many community projects in Little Rock. #DaisyBates #BHMphotochallenge #BlackHistoryMonth #Woman #LittleRockNine
