In Celebration of Women's Month - 'Daisy Bate
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
In Celebration of Women's Month, the I-House Documentary Series presents Daisy Bates: First Lady of Little Rock which tells the story of the seven-year journey by filmmaker Sharon La Cruise to try to unravel the life of a forgotten civil rights activist named Daisy Bates. In 1957, Bates became a household name when she fought for the right of nine black students to attend the all-white Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. Bates' public support culminated in a constitutional crisis—pitting a president against a governor and a community against itself. As head of the Arkansas NAACP, and protector of the nine students, Daisy Bates would achieve instant fame as the drama played out on national television and in newspapers around the world. But that fame would prove fleeting and for her attempts to remain relevant, she would pay a hefty price.
