Sobre o evento

Ruby Bridges became a symbol of the civil rights movement at age six when she was the youngest of a group of African American students designated to integrate schools in the American South. On November 14, 1960, her first day of school at William Frantz Elementary School in New Orleans, Ruby was escorted by four federal marshals and spent the entire day in the principal’s office as irate parents marched into the school to remove their children.

Lead Elementary recognizes Ruby's impact by encouraging all students and families to walk to school on "Ruby Bridges Walk to School Day" on November 14.  For those that wish to participate as a community, we will be gathering at Shoreview Shopping Center and walking to school together.  We will begin walking to school as a group by 7:40 AM.
