The landmark 1954 Supreme Court ruling Brown v. Board of Education brought the promise of integration to Little Rock, Arkansas, but it was hard-won for the nine black teenagers chosen to integrate Central High School in 1957. For Melba Beals and her eight friends, those steps marked their transformation into reluctant warriors - on a battlefield that helped shape the civil rights movement. Drawn from Melba Beals' personal diaries, Warriors Don't Cry is a riveting, true account of her junior year at Central High, from which she emerges with indestructible faith, courage, strength, and hope.
