Dorothy Counts - Little known Black history fact

As a teen, she was the 1st African-American to integrate Harry Harding High School in Charlotte, N. C. She was spit upon and had trash tossed at her as she walked the gauntlet to the school's entrance. I really don't think i possess such guts. But bless her. The level of ugliness is, was unfathomable. Look at those cretins! But it cracked a system that certain towns and cities STILL try to circumvent today. Hats off to you in any case, Dot! You are truly the BETTER woman.
