The story of the book sets place in 1960 explaining the truth and struggles of six-year-old Ruby Bridges, a young African American girl, who entered a whites-only school in New Orleans. Even though she had to pass through crowds of angry protesters, Ruby bravely walked into the school. Everyday for months, Ruby persevered. White parents pulled their children out of the school, and Ruby and her teacher were alone in the classroom. Still, Ruby and her family would not give in.
