The names Elizabeth Eckford and Hazel Bryan Massery may not be well known, but the image of them from September 1957 surely is. This famous photograph captures the full anguish of desegregation, and is an epic moment in the civil rights movement. This book tells the story of two separate lives unexpectedly braided together.
