When Ruby Bridges was just six years old, she became the first Black student to integrate an elementary school in the South. Based on the pivotal events that happened in 1960 and told from her own point of view in a poetic reflection on her experience that changed the face of history and the trajectory of the civil rights movement.
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.
