Jomaria Burns And Angela Terry Ruby Bridges Bridges Being Escorted To School Crowd holding Crosses & Black Doll in Coffin Ruby Bridges at Age 5 Ruby and the Federal Marshal entering the school Ruby and Barack Obama Ruby Bridges was born September 8, 1954, deep in the south. Bridges was raised as a child to believe in God, and religion was important in her family. Ruby was currently in kindergarten when laws were being passed for blacks to attend the same school as whites (Little Rock Nine). A test was sent out for 1st graders to be able to go to white schools. Bridges passed this difficult test. Bridges was going to attend William Frantz on November 14. The other two african americans were too scared, so she was left alone. The U.S. Federal Marshal proctected Ruby as she entered and exited the school. As Bridges entered and left the school, people were screaming and shouting and she didn't think much of it. She thought it was Mardi Gras. Her first white teacher was Mrs. Henry. They got along well. No white students were to be seen in the school. As other white students started coming, people would start threatining there family too. Soon, the crowds began to die down and Ruby was enjoying her new school and education. There was a time Ruby wouldn't eat because she wanted to eat with the other students. She would hide her sandwiches. Being the first black to segregate a school with whites can take a major tole on a person and even stop them from achieving what they want to be in life but that did not stop Ruby. She is known for her bravery and the many accomplishment she has achieved. Ruby and Mrs. Henry Student trying to enter the School Ruby Bridges Ruby Bridges Story
