It's hard to say. knowing that Parks is African-American makes me think I see a little bit of sneering contempt in a couple of the youths expressions. But they may have shown a little contempt for any outsider or "city slciker" in their neck of the woods.

What a talented person. I am always amazed when I think of what a life Parks had and all he accomplished, especially early in his career when he woulde have faced tremendous odds against success due to racisim.
