MONTPELIER, Vt. - A man who helped define the civil rights movement in America was in Montpelier Thursday.

Ernest Green was one of the Little Rock Nine. He spoke at the second annual Vermont youth conference. About 400 kids from 40 school districts were there.

The goal is to promote respect for people of all cultures and races. Organizers also focused on cyber-bullying, a growing problem in Vermont and nation-wide.

"It's anonymous, it's 24/7, and it goes viral, Phil Fogelman, Anti-Defamation league said. "Our goal is to really help young people become aware of the nature of cyber-bullying but the impact it can have."
