A new documentary about the desegregation of Arkansas schools premieres Monday night in Grand Forks. The film tells the story of Grand Forks Central High School graduate Judge Ronald Davies and the nine African American students who were involved in the desegregation of the schools.

One of the "Little Rock Nine" was on UND"s campus Monday -- Dr. Terence Roberts was one of the original African American students enrolled in Little Rock High School in 1957. He spoke to students, faculty and others today about racism then and now, and moving toward equality. The film will be shown tonight at the Chester Fritz Auditorium at 7:00 pm. A discussion will be held following the film. The event is free and open to the public.
