Tuesday, January 14, 1964: 'The Problem We All Live With'

Norman Rockwell's painting is published in Look magazine, part of the themed issue "How We Live." It depicts school integration in the South -- specifically, Ruby Bridges being escorted to elementary school in New Orleans by federal marshals in 1960.
