Melba Pattillo Beals is a survivor of the notorious but historical racial segregation incident, the Little Rock 9. Her searing experiences became the backdrop for her book Warriors Don't Cry: A Searing Memoir of the Battle to Integrate Little Rock's Central High. Beals began writing the memoir in diary form as it was happening when she was 16 years old. Forty years later and after 12 rewrites the book was published. It tells the story of courageous teenagers coping with lynch mobs and dynamite while standing up for their civil rights and access to an education offered to white Americans. It was the Little Rock 9 experience that taught Beals to relate to the media as a teenager. At 17, she began selling articles to newspapers and magazines and later pursued journalism in college (B.A. San Francisco State; M.A. Columbia University). She hosted a radio show, became a TV news reporter, a writer, and finally turned to a career as a communications consultant. Beals has written Expose Yourself: Using the Power of Public Relations to Promote Your Business and Yourself (1990), a self-help guide to publicity that teaches the art of public relations as well as media manipulation.
