“MLK Sunday, The Story of Ruby Bridges”
Rev. Danny Reed
The service will honor and retell the true story of six-year-old African American Ruby Bridges, who in 1960 entered a whites-only school in New Orleans. Passing through angry crowds and persevering while white parents removed their children from school, Ruby and her family would not relent. “The Story of Ruby Bridges” was written by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Robert Coles, and illustrated with George Ford’s poignant watercolor paintings. Ruby’s steadfast example will be a timely reminder of courage and dignity for our families.
