In 1957, Robin Woods Loucks sat next to Terrence Roberts during an algebra class at Little Rock Central High School. She noticed he didn’t have a book, so she shared hers.
“I knew I’d stepped over the line and he knew I’d stepped over the line and I think I remember saying, ‘It’s okay, it’s okay,’” Loucks said.
Loucks was white and Roberts was black. He was one of the Little Rock Nine—nine African-American students who integrated Central High School under protection from the U.S. Army.
Work is underway to restore the east Arkansas home of Johnny Cash. The home is just about an hour away from Memphis near Blytheville. Family and fans came together on Sunday to celebrate what would have been Cash’s 80th birthday.
