This picture may just be my favourite image of all time.
It seems like a simple picture in 2014, but this was anything but simple given its real time and place some 50+ years ago in a time of segregation, racism and inequality.
An unlikely friendship between the Jazz legend, Ms. Ella Fitzgerald and probably the most famous woman in the world even today, Ms. Marilyn Monroe, forced people to somewhat see that essentially we are all equal.
It really is true that friendship and love really do not know the boundaries that certain societies enforce like colour, social status, sexuality or plain and simply put, inequality for anyone that is different from the greater majority.
This picture is a testament to the fact that no matter the time or era, a real friend will always have your back, no matter what the outcome is or what the greater majority may think.
