Drunk History on the Little Rock Nine

Amber Ruffin tells the story of the Little Rock Nine, after a few margaritas. Amandla Stenberg plays Elizabeth Eckford. It was 1957, and schools in Little Rock, Arkansas, had a bit of a problem when the first black high school students entered Little Rock Central High School. Not only did racists try to bar them from school, but the governor called out the National Guard to enforce school segregation, which had been ruled unconstitutional three years earlier.
