Little Rock Nine Stamp

Commemorating a historic moment in the country's race relations, the U.S. Postal Service will issue a ``1957 Little Rock Nine'' stamp this summer.

The stamp will be part of the postal service series to form a more union which commemorates nine other civil rights milestones.

The school became internationally known back in 1957, when then Governor Orval Faubus sent Arkansas National Guardsmen to Central High to prevent nine black students from entering the all-white school.

Former President Eisenhower then sent troops to the school to enforce court ordered school integration.
