Norman Rockwell, The Problem We All Live With, 1964, oil on canvas, 91 cm × 150 cm, Norman Rockwell Museum, Stockbridge, MA. Source

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.
