A bus load of Herron Center members and supporters boarded a Southern Coaches bus September 22 for a day-long trip to Little Rock to view the Emancipation Proclamation at the Clinton Presidential Library, and to visit Central High School, scene of great racial tension fifty years ago.

Our group of about 50 arrived at the Clinton Library about noon and were soon viewing the Emancipation Proclamation as well as a very interesting display the library had prepared on Presidents and their work toward desegregation since 1860. After viewing the whole museum, we headed over to Central High, were we toured their soon-to-be replaced museum. Indeed, while we were there, workers were setting up chairs for the dedication of the new museum that was due to open two days later.
