  • Desegregation Comes to Little Rock

    Despite the 1954 Supreme Court ruling Brown v. Board of Education, many schools in the south resisted desegregation. In September 1957, the school district in Little Rock, Arkansas, made plans to desegregate Central High School, a white high school populated primarily by kids from surrounding blue-collar neighborhoods. This triggered a historic clash between segregationist and integrationist forces, which is recognized today as a major milestone in the American civil rights movement. This battle swirled around nine vulnerable but enormously brave black teenagers—Minnijean Brown, Elizabeth Eckford, Ernest Green, Thelma Mothershed, Melba Patillo, Gloria Ray, Terrence Roberts, Jefferson Thomas, and Carlotta Walls—who came to be known as the “Little Rock Nine.”

  • September Is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

    Prostate cancer starts in the prostate, a small gland in the male reproductive system. Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer diagnosed in men, after skin cancer, with an estimated 220,000 men diagnosed annually. But this cancer can be treated successfully, and nearly 100% of men diagnosed today will still be alive in five years. Early detection and treatment can save lives, so routine testing is important.

    free resource button small  September Is Prostate Cancer Awareness MonthThis chapter from Cancer Sourcebook, 7th Edition, provides a wealth of information on prostate cancer, including a description of the disease, its symptoms, diagnostic tests, stages, treatment, and more.

    Comprehensive information about the causes, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of many different types of cancer is available in Cancer Sourcebook, 7th Edition.
