12. Harold Whittles hears for the first time ever after a doctor places an earpiece in his left ear.This photo was taken by photographer Jack Bradley, and depicts the exact moment when this boy,hears for the very first time ever.
Noone who sees the photo soon forgets it: A small boy, about 3 years old, dressed in a child-sized Ku Klux Klan robe and pointed hat, reaches out to touch his reflection in a riot shield as the African-American trooper holding the shield looks down at him. It was a fleeting moment away from the main action during a Barrow County Ku Klux Klan group’s rally on Sept. 5, 1992, in downtown Gainesville, and just before the little boy’s mother pulled him away.

A black man fearlessly drinks out of a "white only" water fountain when segregation was at its worst. This photo caught my eye because it displays something I haven't seen in many civil rights pictures: humor. He seems to almost be daring the person behind the camera to challenge him.
