Elizabeth Eckford


100 Women Street Gallery (international women)

Born 1941 in the United States, Elizabeth Eckford was catapulted into history for the simple act of going to school. She was one of the first African-American schoolkids to attend a segregated white school, and the riots that blocked her and taunted her relentlessly had to be suppressed by the US military.
