Daisy Bates: The Quiet Force Behind the Little Rock NineHillary Rodham Clinton and her daughter, Chelsea, discuss gutsiness of civil rights activist Daisy Bates, whose profile is featured in the "The Book of Gutsy Women.""You've probably seen the famous images from the 1950s of black students walking past crowds of angry white people to integrate schools after the Supreme Court ruled, in Brown v.

Board of Education, that separate is not equal.

⁣⁣In Arkansas, a group of those pioneering students were known as the Little Rock Nine.

They walked in to Central High School under troop escort 62 years ago this week.

⁣⁣I was lucky enough to know Daisy Bates, the Little Rock Nine's guide and advisor.

A true gutsy woman, she taught me, and Chelsea, some lessons we'll never forget." –Secretary Clinton #gutsywomen
