The Little Rock Nine changed history when they integrated Central High School in Little Rock, Ark. in 1957. The images of their arrival at the school, protected by soldiers from a baying mob of hate-filled white students and adults are iconic. The eight surviving members of that courageous group are in town to receive the 2015 Lincoln Leadership Prize from the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library
