What did Melba Pattillo Beals do?
Also question is, why is Melba Pattillo Beals important?
She has worked as a communications consultant, a motivational speaker, and as a reporter for San Francisco's public television station and for the Bay Area's NBC affiliate. Beals was the first of the Little Rock Nine to write a book based on her experiences at Central High.
Also Know, did Melba graduate from Central High? Eight of the Little Rock Nine have made it through the year. Melba makes it. On this day, Ernie Green becomes the first African-American student to graduate from Central High School. In September 1958, he closes all the high schools in Little Rock.
Thereof, why did Melba want to go to Central?
True, we would learn the meaning of that word as the year progressed, but we wanted to go to Central High first and foremost because of access, because of resources, because of books and good furniture. Because it was seven stories high and four square blocks in diameter. It looked like a castle.
