I Am Ruby Bridges

"My work will be precious,
I will be a bridge between people…
I will bridge the "gap" between black & white…
… but hopefully all people!
I suppose some things in life are just meant to be.

When Ruby Bridges was just six years old, she became the first African American student to integrate an elementary school in the South. In a beautiful and poetic reflection, Ruby Bridges tells her story as never before and shares the events of the momentous day in 1960.

I Am Ruby Bridges offers hope and confidence to all children, through Bridges' lyrical text and NAACP-nominated artist Nikkolas Smith's stunning and beautiful illustrations. Embracing the meaning of her name, Bridges reflects with poignancy and heart on the way one brave little girl stood proud and tall to help build a bridge between all people and pave the path for future generations.
