I’ll never be able to understand how this scene could have been horrifying to anyone:
The first day of desegregation, on Sept. 8, 1954, at Fort Myer Elementary School in Fort Myer, Va.
And this image shows the absurdness of segregation:
Is this de facto segregation? I couldn’t find anything about the context of the photo:
Students sit during a study session at a Mississippi junior high school Jan. 8, 1970.
And this is just one of the sexiest images ever:
A young black woman, soaked by a fireman’s hose as an anti-segregation march is broken up by police, in Birmingham, Alabama, on May 8, 1963. In the background is a police riot wagon.
If you look carefully at the top left of this image, you’ll see a fellow who doesn’t know his place:
Segregated seating at the Orange Bowl, Miami, 1955
