In 1960, six-year-old Ruby Bridges walked into William Frantz Elementary School in New Orleans, Louisiana. She became the first black student to attend the previously all-white school. This event paved the way for widespread school desegregation in the South. This book explores Bridges’s legacy. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards.
