A group of 9 African American students, more commonly know today as the Little Rock 9, were enrolled in Little Rock Central High School in 1957. These students were initially prevented from entering the racially segregated school until the intervention of President Eisenhower. Despite the violence and hardships all 9 students were eventually allowed to attend the formerly all white school under the protection of the U.S. Armed Forces. On September 1st several Antlers employees, owners and friends were treated to a luncheon at the Park Hyatt supported by the Women’s Foundation of Colorado. The Vail Valley luncheon was titled, A Place at Carlotta’s Table: Education & Civil Rights. The key speaker was Carlotta Walls LaNier, one of the Little Rock 9. She was inspirational and a true role model. It was a wonderful presentation, incredibly educational and moving. Susan Hagy Humphry, Antlers condo owner, said, ” The Women’s Foundation has a commitment to make a difference in the lives and education of as many children as possible. There wasn’t a single person in the room that wasn’t touched by the speakers.”
