Elizabeth Eckford, age 15, pursued by a mob, with Hazel Bryan Massery directly behind, at Little Rock Central High School on the first day of the school year, September 4, 1957.

Elizabeth Eckford is one of the Little Rock Nine, a group of African-American students who, in 1957, were the first black students ever to attend classes at the previously all-white Little Rock Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. The integration came as a result of Brown v. Board of Education.
