Do you know who Ruby Bridges is? When she was 6 years old she was the first black skinned girl to go to a school that until that day was for white skinned students. Ruby’s grandmother picked her name but Ruby did not like it because she thought the name was ancient. Did you know Ruby had to pass a test to get into the school? She is an intelligent person. Ruby was driven to school by bodyguards sent by the President of the United States to keep her safe. Ruby Bridges changed the world for students everywhere!
