The first black students to step into newly integrated schools faced extreme hostility from whites who felt Jim Crow society was under attack.</p><p>The segregationists defied federal court orders. When National Guard troops sent by President Eisenhower forced the issue, white supremacists changed tactics, patiently and cruely wielding political and economic influence against activists.

Closing all schools, they felt, was better than integrating them.</p><p>Support us by supporting our sponsors!</p><p><strong>ZipRecruiter</strong> - <a href="http://ZipRecruiter.com/AHT" target="_blank">ZipRecruiter.com/AHT</a> is the smartest way to hire.</p><p><strong>Ancestry</strong> - Visit <a href="http://Ancestry.com/Tellers" target="_blank">Ancestry.com/Tellers</a> for 20% off your family discovery membership.</p><p><strong>The Great Courses</strong> - Get unlimited access to courses on any topic at <a href="http://TheGreatCoursesPlus.com/Tellers" target="_blank">TheGreatCoursesPlus.com/Tellers</a></p>
