This Is Your Time

Inspired by the recent wave of activism led by young people fighting for racial justice, civil rights icon Ruby Bridges — who, at the age of six, was the first black child to integrate an all-white elementary school in New Orleans — shares her story and offers a powerful call to action with this elegant gift book. Written as a letter to the reader, This Is Your Time is both a recounting of Ruby's experience as a child, and an appeal to generations to come to effect change.

This beautifully designed volume features historical photographs from the 1960s and from today, as well as stunning jacket art from The Problem We All Live With, the 1964 painting by Norman Rockwell of Ruby's walk to school. Ruby's honest and impassioned words, imbued with love and grace, serve as a moving reminder that "what can inspire tomorrow often lies in our past." This Is Your Time will electrify people of all ages as the struggle for liberty and justice for all continues, and the powerful legacy of Ruby Bridges endures.
