This paper is an analysis of the success of the author, Melba Beals, in her accuracy and skill in the depiction of the events of the integration of Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, decades ago.

From the Paper:

"You can almost feel the sweat in your palms, hear the curses ringing in your ears, and feel the footsteps on the ground behind you pattering as you anxiously read the autobiography of Melba Pattillo Beals in Warriors Don't Cry. Beals does an excellent job of not only accurately portraying the history of the integration of Little Rock's Central High, but creates a strong emotional attachment with the nine young children who were the first to enter the all white school. There are no newspaper articles of that era and location that could possibly develop the story quite as well as in this book."
