AP PHOTOS: 1957 Little Rock desegregation effort
Wednesday - 1/15/2014, 3:00am EST
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -- Racial divisions within Little Rock's schools date to 1957, when President Dwight Eisenhower used federal troops to enforce a judge's order that all-white Central High School admit nine black students.
Gov. Orval Faubus triggered the tumult, saying he feared violence if races were allowed to mix in a public school. Violence did erupt when a white mob attempted to keep the black students from entering the school.
In the years since, Little Rock-area schools have been involved in lawsuits more often than not.
On Monday -- five decades and $1 billion after the infamous racial episode -- a judge ruled that Arkansas can stop making payments to three Little Rock-area school districts. But he cautioned work remained to ensure all students receive a proper education.
Here's a look at some images from 1957 and 1958:
