    "The problem we all live with" — by Norman Rockwell depicting an incident in the American Civil Rights struggle of the early 1960s, when Ruby Bridges entered first grade on the first day of court-ordered desegregation of New Orleans, LA, public schools (November 14, 1960). Originally published in Look magazine. The painting is currently displayed in the West Wing of the White House, just outside President Obama's Oval Office.

    “The Problem We All Live With” (1964) is arguably the best Norman Rockwell painting ever. It shows Ruby Bridges, a six-year-old black girl, walking to school – with four guards. It is 1960 in New Orleans. It is the first time a black child is going to an all-white grade school in the American South. The picture hangs in the White House, just outside President Obama’s office.

    1963-1964 An example of Rockwell's more serious work is 'The Problem We All Live With', which dealt with the issue of school racial integration. The painting depicts a young African American girl, Ruby Bridges, flanked by white federal marshals, walking to school past a wall defaced by racist graffiti.
