      "Don't be afraid", Ruby Bridges's mother told her on November 4, 1960. Soon, four United States federal court marshals arrived at the Bridges family home in New Orleans, to drive the first grader to William Frantz Public School. Ruby held her head high. With the marshals surrounding her, the 6-year-old walked into the school and became one of the first African Americans to attend an all-white elementary school in the South. #WomenRock

      "Don't be afraid." That's what Ruby Bridges' mother told her on Nov 4, 1960. Little Ruby listened carefully to the advice. Soon, 4 US federal court marshals, or officers, arrived at the Bridges family home in New Orleans, La., to drive the 1st grader to William Frantz Public School. A screaming mob was waiting. People stood near the building shouting. Ruby held her head high. W/the marshals surrounding her, the 6-yr-old walked into the school & into history

    Inventor of the telephone, Alexander Graham Bell (1847-1922). He would have been known to history as just Alexander Bell but, highly jealous of his brothers’ middle names, he asked for & received one for his 11th birthday. His interest in acoustics developed through his childhood experiences with his deaf mother, influencing his later work with the deaf and in experimentation with sound.
