    Rutledge: We Honor the Legacy of Daisy Bates

    February 16, 2015

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

    “On a day when we honor our nation’s presidents, in Arkansas, we also honor a woman who was a driving force in the fight for racial equality in our state and country. Daisy Bates helped break the racial barrier by providing critical support to nine brave Little Rock students struggling to integrate Little Rock Central High School. It is fitting that we honor this courageous woman during Black History Month.”
