Ruby Bridges is someone I want to think about more often. She challenges me to be better.


Ruby Bridges

Fought racism at 6 years old

When Ruby Bridges was only six years old, she became the first black child to attend an all-white primary school in Louisiana, desegregating the William Frantz Elementary School on November 14, 1960. Escorted by federal marshals past crowds screaming vicious slurs at her, Ruby was a class of one.

Segregationist backlash: Abon lost his job, and grocery stores refused to sell to Lucille. Ruby’s share-cropping grandparents were evicted from their farm.

“Some people did not want a black child to go to the white school. They stood near the school. They yelled at me to go away.”

Thank you for supporting peacebuilding and the Miami Valley Peace Heroes Trail!
