The Story of Ruby Bridges by Robert Coles - Text connections
TEXT TO TEXT
No! I will not give up my seat.

This story reminded me of another story I had read called, Rosa, by Nikki Giovanni. It tells the story of the brave Rosa Parks and how she would not give up her seat on the bus. Both these texts have strong female characters who stand up for what they believe in.
The angry mobs in the story reminded me of a news broadcast where I saw the employees of a grocery store on strike.
Eventually Ruby's school was desegregated and she went to school with all different races. This reminds me of my school. There are many races present.
