On the morning of September 4th, 1957, Dorothy Counts walked into an all-white high school for the very first time. She was African American. When she arrived, the only thing greeting her was evil and hatred, but she showed incredible courage in the face of adversity.

Dorothy was only 15 years-old when she bravely walked into a previously all-white high school.

Dorothy didn”t let the cruelty of others stand in her way. She never stooped to their level, remaining calm and collected no matter what was thrown her way. She teaches all of us – regardless of skin color – that it”s how we handle the evil of the world that truly matters.
