The Morning Show- 8/5/20 Melba Beals (Little Rock Nine)

WGTD's The Morning Show with Greg Berg

Part One: Melba Pattillo Beals, author of "March Forward, Girl: From Young Warrior to Little Rock Nine."  In 1957, Beals was one of 9 African-American young people who were enrolled in the facially segregated Little Rock Central High School in the wake of the Brown vs. Board of Education decision of the U.S. Supreme Court.  Part Two:  ABC's Dan Harris, author of "Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics: a 10% Happier How-To Book."  Harris turned to meditation to help him through some anxiety issues; it worked for him, even though he was far from the typical practitioner of meditation.

E9. They threw acid in her face and chased her with bats; Melba Beals is one of The Little Rock Nine

The Kenny James Show

In 1957, a group of nine black teens enrolled into a formally all white school in Little Rock, Arkansas. Their attendance at the school was a test of Brown v. Board of Education, a landmark in the 1954 supreme court ruling that declared segregation in public schools as unconstitutional.  My guest today is Melba Pattillo Beals, one of the Little Rock Nine who so courageously volunteered to attend Central High that day.  Her book, “I will not fear: My story of a lifetime of building faith under fire” is out now. Visit KennyJToday.com to contribute and support the podcast.

Melba Beals My Radio Professor, Civil Rights Icon, Shares Thoughts on Education, Love, and Family

Inspiring Teachers

Melba Beals is a hero to me, and to the nation, as one of nine little girls who integrated Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, in September of 1957. Episode #15 of Inspiring Teachers brings me back to an interview with my mentor, and Civil rights icon, Melba Pattillo Beals. I did not know that when I entered into my first radio broadcasting class at Dominican University of California, and met my professor, who corrected me from saying Mrs. Beals, and told me to call her Melba. Melba was my teacher for three straight semesters, and taught me a lot more than just how to be a broadcaster with ethics. Melba taught me about history, life, and how to be a morally guided and well-rounded person. In 2017 I sat down with Melba for an audio interview, and I find it to be one of the most inspiring interviews that I have ever captured. Education carried Melba through many adventures, books, and successes, and she shares her story with us on Inspiring Teachers. Questions for our next episode or guest ideas?

Freedom Loves Company

In 1957, Melba Patillo Beals, was one of nine African-American high school students chosen to integrate Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. She became a journalist, professor, author, and at the age of 52 adopted twin sons. In her book, I Will Not Fear: My Story of a Lifetime of Building Faith Under Fire, she tells her life story and how the faith she received from her grandmother grew and became her source of strength and inspiration. In the interview, she takes us back to LIttle Rock in 1957. She recounts the hostility of the white mob, the overt and violent racism she encountered, and the 'angels' who helped her along the way.
