Dorothy Counts being mocked by an entirely white audience on enrollment day at Harding High School. September 4th, 1957
It must have been horrible. Grace under fire.
She is a hero, a fifteen year old should not have to go through this, being mocked by kids AND adults. The loneliness and disgust in her face is heartbreaking. Yet she endured it and and made history, showing us what humans are capable of.
There must have been people who symphatised with her and the cause…why did they not step forward and strech a hand to her?
