Inspired by the famous Norman Rockwell painting comes the true story of six-year-old Ruby Bridges, one of the first African-American students to integrate a public elementary school in New Orleans. Into her life comes Harvard psychologist Robert Coles. Together, they overcome the threatening crowds, earning them both a place in history and a life-long friend in each other. Guided by the strength and love of her parents and protected by federal marshals, this young girl would show grace and dignity as she endured jeers, threats and insults while making her way up the step of the school. Once inside, Ruby found her classroom empty as the white parents had pulled their children from the school. Barbara Henry, a caring and courageous teacher, would become the friend Ruby needed and the teacher she deserved

"Although many of the movers and shakers of the Civil Rights era are gone now, their names will live forever through their achievements. This NewsHour program describes the courageous actions of Rosa Parks and Hamilton Holmes and picks the brain of John Lewis about what it was like to take part in the Freedom Ride and to lead the Selma march on Bloody Sunday."--FMG site
