ELIZABETH ECKFORD


Elizabeth Eckford was one of the Little Rock Nine, the kids who integrated the school systems in Arkansas. We watched a documentary on this in my religion class, probably because it is black history month, but these pictures of her really made me feel. Yes, I find fashion inspiration in the weirdest places. But in her case, it isn't just what she is wearing that inspires me, it is the attitude she carries herself with. She was only a Junior in high school when she had to face all of these people filled with hate, which was directed at her. She is an ultimate badass, standing up for what is right, and looking cool as a cucumber while doing so.
