Elizabeth and Hazel: Two Women of Little Rock
David Margolick recounted the lives of Elizabeth Eckford and Hazel Bryan and the photograph of the two women, then both fifteen years old, taken on September 4, 1957. On that date, Ms. Eckford, entered Little Rock Central High School on the first day of its desegregation and Ms. Bryan was photographed angrily screaming at the young, African-American woman. Mr. Margolick examined both women’s lives leading up to that day and after as Ms. Eckford and Ms. Bryan attempted to live outside of the shadow of the photograph and develop a friendship later in life. David Margolick responded to questions from members of the audience at the Clinton School of Public Service at the University of Arkansas in Little Rock. close
