Elizabeth Eckford

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.
