    LITTLE ROCK – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge, who attended today’s ceremony marking the 60th anniversary of the integration of Little Rock Central High School, released the following statement:

    “Sixty years today, nine brave students helped set a new course, not only for a high school and a city, but for a nation,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “The Little Rock Nine showed moral courage and resolve in the face of great adversity as they climbed the steps of Little Rock Central and walked through the doors. Their climb – toward equality, justice and opportunity – is a climb we must never forget and commit to making continued progress.”
