In 1960, six-year-old Ruby Bridges walked through an angry crowd and into a school where she changed history. This is the extraordinary true story of the little girl who helped shape our country when she became the first African American to attend an all-white school in New Orleans. With simple text and historical photographs, this easy reader explores an amazing moment in history and the courage of a young girl who stayed strong in the face of racism.
