Dorothy Counts being mocked by an entirely white audience on enrollment day at Harding High School. September 4th, 1957

damn, i can’t imagine feeling that alone

When you stand for what you believe in NOTHING can get to you. 

This picture really makes my blood boil. This was 55 years ago, so most of the people jeering and mocking Dorothy Counts are probably still alive. They would be in their early 70s. My parents are older than them. I wonder whether they are ashamed of themselves today. They ought to be. Racist bastards.
