The Problem we All Live With

It shows Ruby Bridges, a 6 year-old little black girl, walking to school escorted by 4 US marshals in New Orleans in 1960. Ruby is wearing white only because white is the colour of peace and innocence. She is carrying her school stuff. She doesn't seem scared, she seems calm and confident.
We can't see the faces of her bodyguards. They are wearing suits and yellow arm bands.
We like this painting because it is beautiful."
