Erin Devlin is a professor of History and American Studies at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg. She has written a book Remember Little Rock (University of Massachusetts Press, 2017), about racial integration in Arkansas's capital from the 1950s onward. As she discusses with Colin, the story of Little Rock integration was one of progress and setbacks, and it's a story that resonates not just throughout the South, but in the North as well. It is also a story important to today's politics and battles over public education.
