Re: “The fight to desegregate the Arkansas Capitol cafeteria

Barbara Leary is my sister and in 1964 she was very brave to go in alone. A person of color(East Indians,Hispanics,Asians I am not sure about) could be arrested for any dubious reason anywhere in the south.I was away at school at North Texas State University and at that time I did not realize the significance of her action.Imagine even if you worked at the Capitol your color was used to prevent something as everyday as going to lunch nearby during your lunch time.
