Remaining Members Of The Little Rock Nine Stand For The National Anthem

The NFL protest of the national anthem doesn’t seem to impact how past civil rights heroes act during the national anthem.

The remaining members of the Little Rock Nine stood during the national anthem during a ceremony commemorating the desegregation of Little Rock, AR.

This comes a day after hundreds of NFL players knelt during the national anthem to protest racial injustice in America.

The eight surviving members of the Little Rock Nine and former President Bill Clinton were part of a ceremony honoring the sixtieth anniversary of the desegregation of Little Rock, AR.

Everyone in attendance appears to have stood for the national anthem, despite the recent controversy around the anthem.
