This is a photo of the first Black girl to attend an all white school in the United States—Dorothy Counts—being jeered and taunted by her white, male peers. This photo encompasses a lot of things that I really hate: prejudice, ignorance, racism, sexism, inequality…
I’ve reblogged this photo a few times before but it always needs to be reblogged again.
This picture makes me really sad. I am unbelievably impressed with her bravery.
yeah and after four days of harassment that threatened her safety, her parents forced her to withdraw from the school.
needed to be reblogged
One does not simply scroll through this…
look at the grown up man on the right. look how he is laughing at her. this is making me cry
