‘We Shouldn’t Be Going Through This After 60 Years’: Civil Rights Pioneers React to Continued Fight

Archival photo in low resolution black and white, showing the entire McDonogh Number 19 Elementary School shortly after its construction in 1929. There are small trees planted around it and a large flagpole approximately 70 feet high off to one side, with the bottom of the U.S. flag visible in frame.
