On the morning of September 4, 1957, fifteen-year-old Dorothy Counts set out on a harrowing path toward Harding High, where-as the first African American to attend the all-white school – she was greeted by a jeering swarm of boys who spat, threw trash, and yelled epithets at her as she entered the building.

Charlotte Observer photographer Don Sturkey captured the ugly incident on film, and in the days that followed, the searing image appeared not just in the local paper but in newspapers around the world.

People everywhere were transfixed by the girl in the photograph who stood tall, her five-foot-ten-inch frame towering nobly above the mob that trailed her. There, in black and white, was evidence of the brutality of racism, a sinister force that had led children to torment another child while adults stood by. While the images display a lot of evils: prejudice, ignorance, racism, sexism, inequality, it also captures true strength, determination, courage and inspiration.

Here she is, age 70, still absolutely elegant and poised.

she deserves to be re-blogged. 

she’s so goddamned inspirational

this makes me want to cry

Note to self: this moment mirrors the one in Scandal in which Irene (wearing nothing but his coat) holds a finger up to Sherlock’s lips without actually making contact. Here in his mind palace not only does she caress his cheek but briefly touches his lips. And she seems to be naked. Interesting…

I’ll leave you to your deductions

The thought patterns of the creators of the waxwork of Benedict Cumberbatch


sherlockingmyhouse:

"So his eye colour is… no wait now it’s… now it’s gone back to… WTF?"

"Check his top lip, does the line go ALL the way down to the centre?"

"To add the Frankenstein make-up scars, or not to add the Frankenstein make-up scars. That is the question."

"Yep, he’s definitely got those kind of ear lobes"

"FUCKING ERRANT CURL!!"

Benedict Cumberbatch measures up for a Madame Tussauds waxwork figure http://huff.to/Wy8elT 


what a time to be alive…some fun … wax-ing facts:
All figures have their hair washed and make-up retouched regularly. 
More than 250 precise measurements and photographs of a subject are taken to accurately create a wax figure. If the subject is unavailable for these measurements and photographs, Madame Tussauds studio artists study hundreds of photos and watch hours of video to create the figure. 
All celebrities’ vital statistics are kept confidential – despite repeated requests from the public and media. 
Because wax shrinks, wax figures are made two percent larger than the real life subjects they portray. 
Each strand of hair is inserted individually, taking approximately five weeks to complete each head.
Each figure costs approximately $125,000 to make. (x)

Today is Diana Rigg’s 76th birthday, so it’s a good time to remind everyone that when the question is “who’s the prettiest kick-ass in all the land?” the answer is almost always “Emma Peel”.
