Little Rock, by Rajendra Ramoon Maharaj, tells the riveting true story of the Little Rock Nine, the first black students to attend their city’s formerly segregated central high school, three years after the Brown vs. Board of Education Supreme Court decision declared that separating students by race was unconstitutional. What began as their quest for a better education soon became a national crisis, igniting the passions of a divided country and sparking a historic fight for justice in the Jim Crow south. On the cusp of the civil rights movement, a changing world watched as these nine children from Arkansas battled for their rights, armed with only a book and pencil. At once harrowing and hopeful, Little Rock brings to life the Nine’s untold personal stories of challenge and resilience, conjuring memories of America not so long ago. From writer and director Rajendra Ramoon Maharaj, this moving play honors the bravery of these young heroes and asks audiences, “Would you have had the courage?”
