"Little Rock" is a bilingual poem published by Cuban writer Nicolás Guillén in 1958. The text is a direct denunciation of the race-based segregation present within the United States and written after the Little Rock Crisis emerged during the Civil Rights Movement. As a satirical claim, the poem written in both English and Spanish serves as an appeal to imagine how a changing world would be without race differences. As part of the anthology La paloma del vuelo popular, the composition is fully representative of the "black poetry" he used to write, just as the use of names and real situations at the same time gives a qualitative value where applied.
