Flashback: September 1957

Elizabeth and Hazel:  Two Women of Little RockElizabeth and Hazel: Two Women of Little Rock.  New Haven: Yale University Press, c2011.

In the iconic photograph, the young black woman in dark glasses averts her gaze while clutching a stack of folders.  A crowd appears behind her, the camera focusing on the jeering face of a young white woman.  Elizabeth and Hazel is the fascinating story of what happened to these two high school students - Elizabeth Eckford and Hazel Massey - after this photo was snapped in 1957.
