In 1960, six-year-old Ruby Bridges walked through an angry crowd to claim her right to equal education. This is the true story of an extraordinary little girl who helped shape our country when she became the first African American to attend an all-white school in New Orleans. With simple text and historical photographs, this easy reader—written by Ruby Bridges herself—explores an amazing moment in history and the courage of a girl who stayed strong in the face of racism.
