Discuss inequality as you explore Rockwell’s “The Problem We all Live With.”
“The Problem We all Live With” was created for “Look” Magazine to commemorate the tenth anniversary of Brown vs. Board of Education which ended racial segregation stating that separate was not equal. The painting shows a young girl being escorted into her newly integrated school by US marshals as onlookers protest all around her. It was inspired by Ruby Bridges, who, in 1960, was among one of the first children to integrate the schools in New Orleans.
