Summary Inspired by the famous Norman Rockwell painting comes the true story of six-year-old Ruby Bridges, one of the first African-American students to integrate a public elementary school in New Orleans. Into her life comes Harvard psychologist Robert Coles. Together, they overcome the threatening crowds, earning them both a place in history and a life-long friend in each other. Guided by the strength and love of her parents and protected by federal marshals, this young girl would show grace and dignity as she endured jeers, threats and insults while making her way up the step of the school. Once inside, Ruby found her classroom empty as the white parents had pulled their children from the school. Barbara Henry, a caring and courageous teacher, would become the friend Ruby needed and the teacher she deserved.
