About school, pressure, and her Secondary sources are detailed but can be from an invalid source or authors who are biased. However, they can be very helpful. They are stuffed with information, but you must make sure the source is reliable. Ruby Bridges was a little girl when she changed the world; she barely even knew what was happening. She was a brave girl who had the courage to face a mob everyday and work her hardest in a classroom filled with just her and her teacher. I learned so much about Ruby and her story from all different sources. She changed the world with her and her parents one choice to go to an all-white school. After her everyone felt they could stand up and be brave. By Rachel Wade The year was 1960
The day, November 14th
When a little Black girl
Was brave in New Orleans

Her name was Ruby Bridges
Some called her Ruby Nell
She lived through segregation
And gained quite a story to tell

William Frantz Elementary
Would never be the same
It was no longer a White school
The day that Ruby came

On her first day of school
She was so strong and proud
She stepped boldly without stopping
Through fiercely threatening crowds

There were people filled with hatred
Who told Ruby to go back home
They did not want integration
They taunted Ruby to make it known

But little Ruby had protection
Her mother, US Marshalls, and her God
As she stepped into this new school
Her teacher, Ms. Henry, won her heart

Ruby was, sometimes, afraid
But she prayed and continued on
With her family, teacher, and community
She weathered integration’s storm

Ruby Bridges’ experience
Is a significant part of history
Her unwavering faith and courage
Resulted in what we now see

Schools all across America
Integrated and diverse
Children of every color and creed
Learning together, breaking the curse. Ruby Bridges' Brave Step
by Latorial Faison This poem tells the story of Ruby Bridges I an interesting and creative way. It also explains how she felt and what helped her through her time as the only african american at an all white school.
