The image was published by Belleville News-Democrat on Sunday after DeVos was met by protesters when she visited a public school earlier in the week.
While trying to enter a Washington, D.C. public school, DeVos was physically blocked by protesters. Although she turned away and left the school, she soon returned and entered through a different door.
On Nov. 14, 1960, 6-year-old Ruby Bridges was escorted into the all-white William Frantz Elementary School in New Orleans. Due to the overwhelming fury of white protesters, four U.S. marshals walked with Bridges and her mother.
After that afternoon, painter Norman Rockwell was so inspired he created what became an classic American painting titled "The Problem We All Live With.” The painting graced the cover of Life magazine in 1964, according to the Washington Post.
