      "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.
