September 4, 1957 - Girvaud Roberts at Piedmont Junior High School
When Girvaud Robers and her mother arrive at Piedmont Junior High, the students and their parents stare at them, but there is no violence.
Girvaud and her mother are greeted by principal Don Newman. As Girvaud is escorted to her classroom by Principal Newman, she remembers her parents' advice to "carry yourself tall."
Several people boo as Girvaud leaves school that day.
