She Persisted: Ruby Bridges

As a first grader, Ruby Bridges was the first Black student to integrate William Frantz Elementary School in New Orleans, Louisiana. This was no easy task, especially for a six-year-old. Every day, she had to walk past an angry mob, escorted by federal marshals, and she was alone in the classroom because every other parent had pulled their children out of school. But Ruby's bravery and perseverance inspired children and adults alike to fight for equality and social justice.

Inspired by the #1 New York Times bestselling series She Persisted by Chelsea Clinton and Alexandra Boiger, this chapter book biography by award-winning author Kekla Magoon introduces young readers to Ruby's quiet courage as she took a bold step towards the desegregation of schools. It's a powerful tribute to a young girl who stood up, spoke up and rose up against the odds!
