      "Don't be afraid." That's what Ruby Bridges' mother told her on November 4, 1960. Soon after, four United States federal court marshals arrived at the Bridges' family home in New Orleans, LA, to drive the first grader to William Frantz Public School. A screaming mob was waiting. Ruby held her head high. With the marshals surrounding her, the 6-year-old walked into the school and into history as the first black child to attend an all white elementary school in the American south.

    This is Ruby Bridges -- the first black child to attend an all-white elementary school in the South.

    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.

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