I am Ruby Bridges / written by Ruby Bridges ; art by Nikkolas Smith.

Bridges, Ruby, (author.). Smith, Nikkolas, 1985- (illustrator.).


"When Ruby Bridges was six years old, she became the first African American student to integrate an elementary school in the South. Told in the perspective of her six year old self and based on the pivotal events that happened in 1960, Ruby tells her story like never before. Embracing her name and learning that even at six years old she was able to pave the path for future generations, this is a story full of hope, innocence, and courage."-- Provided by publisher.
