Ruby Bridges came to speak at our school(St. Helena Arts and Technology Academy) today in St. Helena Parish, LA. If you don’t know who she is, she helped integrate the South by being the first black student to attend an all white elementary school in New Orleans, LA in 1960. She was a first grader just like the kids I teach.
Loved hearing the event from her point of view. How she didn’t understand the hatred. She just wanted a friend. She didn’t care how they looked. All the kids were so quiet. Listening. I have never seen a gym full of kids so attentive. These are our signed books! #IAMMOTIVATION
