This morning, Atlanta-based activist & journalist Shaun King combined two photos: Will Counts' famous photograph for the Arkansas Democrat of Elizabeth Eckford attempting to enter Little Rock School on 4th September, 1957; and a photo from the Facebook feed of a young man yelling at a black student from the University of Louisville attending a Trump rally in Louisville on Tuesday, March 1st, 2016.
For context, there's video footage of the student being shoved out of the rally, not by security or Secret Service, but by Trump supporters themselves. And the TV screen photo came straight from the young man's Facebook feed.
From WLKY's report on the rally:
"Trump spoke for about 30 minutes to a rowdy crowd... At one point, a woman could be seen being pushed by people in the crowd until she left. WLKY spoke with the woman on the phone Tuesday night. She said she is doing well. She is just trying to process everything."An activist who attended the rally said:
"In my entire life I had never had anyone look at me with such hate. It was like the videos and photos we've seen from the Little Rock 9 and other school integration moments from the 1950s and 60s where the fury was palpable in the eyes of the white women," said Helm."[Editor's note: I wrote a piece on Sunday that highlighted the similarity between the Sinco & Forman photographs for Vantage on Medium. - MDM]
