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.
that look on her face breaks every piece of my heart
i can only hope to one day embrace an ounce of her bravery and perseverance.
