Dorothy Counts was one of first four black students to integrate North Carolina public schools in 1957. Photographers and reporters recorded the harassment and the violence that erupted on her first day of school. After three more days, for safety reasons, she was forced to drop out of Harding High School and move to Pennsylvania.

…most of theses photos were taken by Charlotte Observer photographer Don Strukey

I’ve always wondered…what happened to the other people in these photos? Are they still alive, and if they are, are they ever embarrassed that these photos of them not only landed them in papers around the world at the time, held up as examples of America’s racism, but are still common today, a symbol of racism? Are they ashamed of how they acted, of the things they said? Have any of them ever attempted to apologize? Will they all of them go to their graves thinking they were right to harass a young girl just because she was black? For some, will they say they’re feelings have changed if they’re asked, but on the inside still feel justified?

I think about this a lot. These pictures are shocking, but how much has really changed? Maybe people would be embarrassed to have their photo snapped. Maybe they wouldn’t act like this. But maybe they still think these things, maybe they still wish it could go back to the way it was before.

wow harding is not even that far away from my own school, this is insane
