Ruby Bridges Takes Her Seat: Courageous Kid of the Civil Rights Movement

When 6-year-old Ruby Bridges and her mother went to William Frantz Elementary School on November 14, 1960, they arrived to find an angry crowd of white people shouting racist insults. For her safety, Ruby had to be escorted to school every day by U.S. Marshals. But despite the hateful attitudes of others, Ruby didn't miss a single day of school that year. Discover the incredible bravery of one young Black girl who faced terrible persecution to get an education in the same school as her fellow white students.

School Library Journal - Margaret Nunes, former Librarian, Gwinnett County Public Library, GA

"Colorful drawings tell the story as much as the text and will attract visual learners. The information provided is good and the detailed narratives in Ruby Bridges and The Little Rock Nine are engrossing; readers will anxiously turn the pages to see how events unfold. . . . Given the graphic form of these books along with perennial classroom topics, these books should do well in libraries and attract those who like the pictures to inform as well as the text." - School Library Journal

Booklist - Julia Smith

"Folks who think that graphic novels don’t hold as much content as traditional texts have another thing coming with the Courageous Kids series. These new entries examine the lives of brave young people in history while providing ample context for the events and social conditions each had to confront." - Booklist
