This is a photo of the first Black girl to attend an all white school in the United States—Dorothy Counts—being jeered and taunted by her white, male peers. This photo encompasses a lot of things that I really hate: prejudice, ignorance, racism, sexism, inequality…but it also encompasses strength, determination, inspiration.
This coach was built for the Queen's 80th birthday. The passenger doors are inlaid with wood from Henry VIII's flagship (the Mary Rose), the Tower of London and St Paul's Cathedral. Admiral Nelson's golden crown, rescued from the battle of Trafalgar, rides atop the roof.
