In an image that defines some of the horrifying reactions to the American civil rights movement of the ’50s and ’60s, Rockwell’s The Problem We All Live With shows a young girl named Ruby Bridges being escorted to her new primary school by four deputy US marshals. The reason for this security? The New Orleans school was previously an all-white institution. Splattered tomatoes and racial insults can be seen along the wall behind the figures, indicating that the viewer is positioned amongst the crowd of protestors. A photograph of the original scene can be viewed here.
