NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Civil rights icon Ruby Bridges-who, at the age of six, was the first black child to integrate into an all-white elementary school in New Orleans-inspires readers and calls for action in this moving letter. Her elegant, memorable gift book is especially uplifting in the wake of Kamala Harris making US history as the first female, first Black, and first South Asian vice president-elect.

Written as a letter from civil rights activist and icon Ruby Bridges to the reader, is both a recounting of Ruby’s experience as a child who had to be escorted to class by federal marshals when she was chosen to be one of the first black students to integrate into New Orleans’ all-white public school system and an appeal to generations to come to effect change.

This beautifully designed volume features photographs from the 1960s and from as well as stunning jacket art from the 1964 painting by Norman Rockwell depicting Ruby’s walk to school.

Ruby’s honest and impassioned words, imbued with love and grace, serve as a moving reminder that “what can inspire tomorrow often lies in our past.” will electrify people of all ages as the struggle for liberty and justice for all continues and the powerful legacy of Ruby Bridges endures.
