See the full film at http://video.pbs.org/video/2192480918As soldiers began streaming into Little Rock to maintain order during the desegration of all-white Central High School, Daisy Bates reflected on a driving force behind her own activism: the murder of her own mother when she was a child.As a black woman who was a feminist before the term was invented, Daisy Bates refused to accept her assigned place in society. Daisy Bates: First Lady of Little Rock tells the story of her life and public support of nine black students who registered to attend the all-white Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, which culminated in a constitutional crisis, pitting a president against a governor and a community against itself. Unconventional, revolutionary, and egotistical, Daisy Bates reaped the rewards of instant fame, but paid dearly for it. http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/daisy-bates/ Learn more about "Independent Lens": http://www.pbs.org/independentlens Watch "Independent Lens" films online: http://video.pbs.org/program/1218239994/--
