NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Paul McCartney says he met with two of the women who integrated Little Rock's Central High School, saying the 1957 crisis inspired the Beatles' hit song "Blackbird." McCartney performed Saturday to a sold-out crowd in North Little Rock, Arkansas. Afterward, McCartney's Instagram and Facebook accounts posted a photo of him with Elizabeth Eckford and Thelma Mothershed Wair, two members of the Little Rock Nine.
