    Ruby Bridges, the first African-American child to attend an all-white elementary school in the American South, escorted by U.S. Marshals dispatched by President Eisenhower for her safety, 14 November, 1960; Learn your black history.

  • Shirley Ha OD

    "Don't be afraid." That's what Ruby Bridges' mother told her on November 4, 1960. Little Ruby listened carefully to the advice. Soon, 4 US federal court marshals/officers arrived at the Bridges family home in New Orleans to drive the 1st grader to William Frantz PS. A screaming mob was waiting. People stood near the building shouting. Ruby held her head high. With the marshals surrounding her, the 6-year-old became the first black child to walk walked into the all-white elementary school.

My babysitter had a wall phone like that. It was a "party line", meaning that it was shared with other homes. #RubyLane

The unboxing of the STATUE OF LIBERTY in 1885. Most people in America don't know that this piece was sent in boxes from France. Also, the designer of the statue was Gustave Eiffel, same person who designed the Eiffel tower. There are some really cool photoes of the statue of liberty when it was first constructed in paris with the old town all around it.
