WASHINGTON -- For many Americans of later generations who watched on television President Clinton's observance in Little Rock of the 40th anniversary of the integration of Central High School, it may have seemed like just another clever photo opportunity for him to demonstrate his empathy for black Americans.Unless these younger viewers also happened to see old film clips of the nine black students in 1957 being led into the school building by bayonet-bearing members of the Army's 101st Airborne Division, and the glaring hostility of white students and townspeople around them, they might not have grasped the significance of the event.

Invariably, they turn to the imagery of death. "I see them dying right before my eyes," Sharon Mock, Cookie's younger sister, says in the back room of the Graces' cheery scrapbook store. "It's like an ongoing funeral," is how Sam Ebersole, a longtime foreman in Mitch's contracting company, puts it outside the Graces' Tudor-style home in adjacent Hollidaysburg.

FORTY YEARS AGO today in Little Rock, Ark., nine determined black children stepped into the annals of American history by quietly walking past a screaming mob of white men and women who, with their taunts and threats, desperately clung to a legacy of segregation and hate.The Little Rock Nine struck a powerful blow for racial equality by integrating Central High School in that Southern city. It was a struggle. And it would not have occurred without the intervention of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who sent 1,200 troops of the 101st Airborne division to assure the mission's success.
