Arkansas ’57 – Ardoyne ’01

Estoril Park, Ardoyne. A dramatic mural connecting the Holy Cross blockade (WP) to desegregation in the U.S. in the wake of Brown v. Board Of Education (WP). The left panel is a rendition of an iconic image of Hazel Bryan hectoring Elizabeth Eckford, one of the Little Rock Nine (WP), in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Red sweaters on b&w background taking after Schindler’s List ? The right panel is based on this photograph.

Later imitated (2009) on the International Wall.
