The presentation is FREE and open to the public, however, seating is limited and students will be given priority. The presentation will be held at 1 p.m. in the Owen Center Auditorium located on the Beebe campus.
Ms. Eckford, one of the historic nine black students that integrated Little Rock Central High School during the fall of 1957, will deliver a presentation based on the recently released book by David Margolick entitled: Elizabeth and Hazel.
