Two years before Governor Faubus attempted to prevent the Little Rock Nine from attending Central High School, twenty-one brave African-American students enrolled in school at the previously segregated Hoxie Public School District. This course, which features the documentary Hoxie: The First Stand, chronicles the struggle encountered by these students and their families as the Hoxie School Board fought to desegregate public education in this rural Arkansas community. The vulgar language, threats, and graphic images are a harsh reminder of the turmoil of the time and were just as offensive then as they are today.

Fuller was approached by citizens telling him they did not believe he could produce thirty-five bushels of rice per acre on his seventy-acre farm.  Mr. Fuller proved them wrong when his rice fields yielded seventy-five bushels an acre that year.
