Ruby Bridges: Get to Know the Girl Who Took a Stand for Education

Ruby Bridges was just six years old when she was chosen to be the first (and only) black child in the all-white William Frantz Elementary School. At the time, Ruby was too young to understand how the simple act of attending school would change the lives of many to come. Her courageous act left the legacy that given a chance, anyone at any age can make a difference in the world.

School Library Journal, Series Made Simple - Rebecca Gueorguiev, New York Public Library

"Discrimination. Genocide. Dignity. Humanity. These titles unite a diverse group of individuals unafraid to take a stand for equality, some with remarkable similarities in their struggles despite the differences in their journeys. . . .More than just life narratives, this series provides a reflection of history. Maps, schematics, historical sketches, and paintings convey their unique stories. With the exception of Tecumseh, for whom no photographic evidence exists, vintage and modern photographs combine with effective, concise writing that often addresses some heavy themes. . . .Great for middle grade collections and to prompt discourse while teaching civil rights units." - School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
