In 1960, Ruby Bridges was the first Black child to integrate to an all-white elementary school, William Frantz Elementary, in New Orleans, Lousisiana. As a timid but eager first grader, Ruby showed tremendous courage as she entered the school each day, surrounded by angry crowds of community members and parents. Her story not only gives hope to others undergoing difficult times, but stands as a story of the crucial choice we must all make to promote tolerance, unity and protection for others.
