Author Speaks to Students

l


An award-winning newspaper editor and journalist who has also written five books visited Boyet Junior High School on August 29 to tell a gathering of seventh grade students about her book entitled “A Mighty Long Way,” published in 2009, which tells the story of Carlotta Walls LaNier, one of the “Little Rock Nine.”

Author Lisa Frazier Page, who lives in Slidell, helped Ms. LaNier, a resident of Colorado, now in her late sixties, write down her memories of the turbulent times when she and several other Black students tried to enroll in an all-white Little Rock high school in 1957. They were turned back and told to go home, and it took federal troops to finally get them past the front door of the school.

Ms. Page worked with Ms. LaNier for two years on the book. “She had quite a story to tell, and because she was so traumatized by the events, for thirty years she didn’t even tell her own children that she was part of the Little Rock Nine," said Ms. Page. "Those were difficult times, especially for a 14 year old girl, to endure what she endured, but she was determined to have the education that she was entitled to, and she made history doing so. “

Ms. Page spoke at Boyet this month because of the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington . The program was part of a unit of classroom study topic on “We the People” which covers the Martin Luther King speech and other historic American events. Ms. Page donated two copies of her book to the Boyet Jr. High library.
