Ruby Bridges Hall was born the 8 september of 1954 in Tylertown. In 1960, when she was 6 years old Ruby Bridges became the first African-Américan child to integrate an all-white elementary school in Louisiane.
Oh My God! Who is that girl, she is so different and ugly!
Yess! It's my first day at school, i'm so happy.
Pff, it's disgusting!
In class this teacher is the only one who accepted to teach Ruby but the little black girl was threatened by other whites children. Ruby was very courageous.
You are so predjudiced. She is a normal little girl, like you!
I refuse to listen your lesson because you agreed to teach Ruby what you are teaching me, but you know black children are forbidden to integrate an all-white school!!
I'm a little bit frustrated but I don't care what she says...
Ruby was very bold and daring because she continued to go to school everyday after this event. She persevered in the face of difficulty.
After school Ruby was protected by four US Marchals because lots of white children's parents insulted her.
Get out you are not accepted here!! You are BLACK !
In 1999, when she was 45 years she wanted to found an association to help black people. She was very strong-willed.
I have a great idea! I'm going to create an association concerning black and white people's segregation. I had a bad experience of Jim Crow laws!
Humm... " Come with me to support the cause for the end of black and white people's racism; dare, revolutionize society''
She wrote lots of flyers to promote her association. She was very dedicated to this cause.
Ruby was walking in the street and sudenly a stranger asked her about why she created her association. she was excited by the idea that whites were interested in her association for helping blacks.
To promote the values of tolerence, respect and appreciation of differences.
