Paul Meets Two of the 'Little Rock Nine'

History met history backstage at the Verizon Arena in Little Rock, AZ last night as Paul McCartney met Mrs. Thelma Mothershed Wair and Ms. Elizabeth Eckford of the 'Little Rock Nine'.

As young students who struggled against segregation, enrolling in the previously all-white Little Rock Central High School in 1957, the 'Little Rock Nine' introduced a young Paul to the civil rights movement and inspired the lyrics of 'Blackbird'.
