In 1957, 15-year-old Minnijean Brown-Trickey changed history as a member of the Little Rock Nine, striding through the front doors of Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. Helping desegregate public schools was just the beginning of her career as a social activist, and for her continued work she has received the U.S. Congressional Gold Medal, the Spingarn Medal, the Wolf Award and a medal from the W.E.B. DuBois Institute, among other citations. As a living witness to history – and as an active participant who has helped shape it – Brown-Trickey delivers a fascinating exploration of social change, diversity and the battle against racism throughout the decades, from the beginnings of her involvement in the Civil Rights Movement to the present day.

This conversation with Anne H. Charity-Hudley, UC Santa Barbara North Hall Endowed Chair in the Linguistics of African America, will be followed by a Q&A..
