Never forget…Dorothy Counts being mocked by an entirely white audience on enrollment day at Harding High School. September 4th, 1957

This is the night I thought we were going to die …
The screams from our protesters being beaten & the images of police beating them with batons … The sounds of the police banging their batons on the ground to intimidate us, the images of media personnel running away and the smell of the chemical spray …
These things continue to play in my head over and over again.
A couple of activists in St. Louis that have been on the front lines since day 1 looked at me while we were running away and said, “tell the world what you experienced here”.
I promised to do just that!
