Federal Oversight of Little Rock Schools Ends

The school district in Little Rock, Ark., is no longer under federal supervision. Friday's decision came nearly 50 years after the governor called on the National Guard to stop black students from integrating Central High.

Minnijean Brown-Trickey — one of the nine black students who integrated Central High — and Roy Brooks, the superintendent of the Arkansas School District, discuss the development with Rebecca Roberts.
