    Rutledge Recognizes Daisy Bates Day


    February 19, 2018

    LITTLE ROCK – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge issued the following statement in honor of Daisy Bates Day:

    “Daisy Bates was a courageous, ground breaking woman who fought for racial equality in Arkansas and across the country. Her support of the nine Little Rock students integrating into Little Rock Central High School and her work with the NAACP all made her an integral part of the civil rights movement. I was honored to tour her home earlier this year and am pleased that this piece of history has been restored for all to view.”
