Ruby's Story

Six year old Ruby Bridges stepped into the history books in 1960 when she integrated William Frantz Elementary School in New Orleans becoming a national icon for the civil rights movement. Today her story continues to inspire the next generation of leaders to end racism together one step at a time.

My message is really that racism has no place in the hearts and minds of our children.

-Ruby Bridges

Ruby Bridges Walk to School Day

An annual day of dialogue to commemorate Ruby's historic steps. Students will continue the conversation and take part in their own forms of activism to bring an end to racism and all forms of bullying.
