The Problem We All Live With - Civil Rights Movement Painting Analysis
Product Description
The Problem We All Live With is a painting by Norman Rockwell that depicts Ruby Bridges, a young African American girl being escorted by Federal Marshalls to public school after desegregation. The painting tells a deep story about issues of civil rights in America. Students in the assignment are asked to make observations of things they see and then are asked to make inferences on what each of those pieces means. This activity works great as a supplemental assignment or as an introduction to the civil rights movement for all grade levels.

*NOTE: This painting does contain some offensive language, which should be taken into account when using the activity. Although I believe this adds to the teachable content behind the image, it is important to explain to your class before they analyze the painting.
