Congressional Gold Medal Awarded to Little Rock Nine

GREGG JARRETT reporting: President Clinton awarded the Congressional Gold Medal today, to several black students of the fifties who helped integrate an Arkansas school. The group known as the “Little Rock nine” endured threats, taunts, when they attended an all-white high school and today they received the nation’s highest civilian honor.

President BILL CLINTON: Today we celebrate the faiths of our founders, the faiths of parents and their children, the faith of children in their future. We celebrate it because we can. And we can because these nine people helped us to keep it alive, and to redeem it.
