Dorthy Counts-Charlotte NC was actually the first black in America to step foot in an all white school. in 1957 she was treated so badly she had to leave the school after 4 days. That's 3 years before Ruby Bridges or any other integration story. She was bullied and hit with stones. The harassment started when the wife of John Z. Warlick, the leader of the White Citizens Council, urged the boys to "keep her out" and at the same time, implored the girls to spit on her.
