Ruby Bridges, the little black girl who desegregated new Orleans schools, is only 62

In early 1960, Bridges was one of six black children in New Orleans to pass the test that determined whether they could go to the all-white school, William Frantz Elementary. Bridges was the only one who decided to go to the new school. She and her mother were escorted to school by four federal marshals during the first year Bridges attended William Frantz Elementary.

As soon as Bridges entered the school, white parents pulled their own children out; all the teachers refused to teach while a black child was enrolled. Only one person agreed to teach Ruby and that was Barbara Henry, from Boston, Massachusetts, and for over a year Henry taught her alone, “as if she were teaching a whole class.”

On the second day a white student broke the boycott and entered the school when a 34-year-old Methodist minister, Lloyd Anderson Foreman, walked his 5-year-old daughter Pam through the angry mob, saying, “I simply want the privilege of taking my child to school …” A few days later, other white parents began bringing their children, and the protests began to subside.

The Bridges family suffered for their decision to send her to William Frantz Elementary: her father lost his job, the grocery store the family shopped at would no longer let them shop there, and her grandparents, who were sharecroppers in Mississippi, were turned off their land. She has noted that many others in the community, both black and white, showed support in a variety of ways. Some white families continued to send their children to Frantz despite the protests, a neighbor provided her father with a new job, and local people babysat, watched the house as protectors, and walked behind the federal marshals’ car on the trips to school.

    I hope those two worthless junkies OD and that little boy can find a real adult willing to raise him into the young man he deserves to become. Without getting immediate help there is a very small chance that this little boy will become a functioning member of society. People like that are nothing but leeches on society, no doubt they both have rapsheets longer then the average persons resume. A cop buddy of mine said I want to say it was around 80-90% of the people he encounters who commit a crime, not minor traffic violations but actual crimes, are repeat offenders.
