Barbara Henry here with Ruby Bridges forty years later. Teachers at William Frantz Elementary School refused to accept the six year old as a student, (cheers for devoted teachers). Ms Henry was the only teacher willing to teach Ruby Bridges in 1960.

Six year old Ruby Bridges was the first black child in the south to attend a white school after the forced integration following the landmark ruling of Brown Vs. The Board of Education. A willing participant in her mother's decision that she would go and endure what was to be sure a very tough road in the name of helping forge the path of the civil rights movement, Ruby faced death threats and intense bullying with courage and grace.

Eartha M.M. White and her mother Clara White, 1910. A former opera singer, Eartha helped create the first school for black children in the Bayard neighborhood of Jacksonville. Eartha lived frugally on a teacher's wages, so she could support philanthropic causes. In 1904, she founded the Clara White Mission to honor her mother, a former slave who ran a soup kitchen in her home. Founded to serve blacks in segregated Jacksonville, the Clara White Mission now serves people of all races.
