The names Elizabeth Eckford and Hazel Bryan Massery may not be well known, but the image of them from September 1957 surely is: a black high school girl, dressed in white, walking stoically in front of Little Rock Central High School, and a white girl standing directly behind her, face twisted in hate, screaming racial epithets. This famous photograph captures the full anguish of desegregation--in Little Rock and throughout the South--and an epic moment in the civil rights movement. David Margolick tells the remarkable story of two separate lives unexpectedly braided together.
Pick up a copy of the book at the July program. Read, and then join other book club members for a lively discussion of this fascinating non-fiction title.
