Ms. Brown-Trickey has a lifelong experience and commitment to peacemaking; environmental issues; developing youth leadership; antiracism education and training; cross-cultural communication; gender and social justice advocacy. She is one of the nine African American students, commonly known as the Little Rock Nine who collectively resisted opposition to the desegregation of Little Rock Central High School in 1957, with protection from federal troops. As a living witness to history? and as an active participant who has helped shape it she delivers a fascinating exploration of social change, diversity, and the battle against racism throughout the decades, from the beginnings of her involvement in the Civil Rights Movement to the present day.
