    She believes that she has a right to go to school there

    Explanation:

    Melba Pattillo Beals was one of the black school children that were integrated into the Central High after the Supreme Court declared segregated schools as unconstitutional. She and other black kids were met by an angry mob who didn't want them there and it took the intervention of federal troops for them to attend classes.

    She explained in her interview that after those episodes of attacks _both verbal and physical_ she was discouraged but always had her grandmother to guide and advise her and although she was frightened by the episode and the overwhelming racism and discrimination that was prevalent then, she believed she had a right to go to Central High because it was the best and her parents paid tax.
