From Dallas, Tx. .. I visited my Aunt Mary Baldwin Meek Hankins when she lived on Park Ave in Little Rock, Ark.. In front of her home, I recall seeing Federal/State Reserve Soldiers with weapons on the grounds of Little Rock Central High School.. and was appalled that any soldier(s)r were stationed on a high school grounds.. My father attended that high school.. While that civil rights event was so historic, I am disappointed Arkansas' history was tainted by no better embrace of this time..
