Ruby Bridges BY Jamielyn Lomax

Ruby bridges was one of the six kids in New Orleans to pass a test to determine whether she was able to go to a white school. People where very mean and cruel to Ruby. All Ruby really wanted to do was to go to a white school and be able to have a good education. She was very determined to be able to go to an all white school. Ruby did not let the color of her skin let her fail in life. That is how Ruby Bridges wa sable to be apart of women in history.

In Ruby's life time she faced many different obstacles. She faced good obstacles and bad obstacles. More of her obstacles bad than good. But Ruby did not let that phase her in any way, shape, or form. That just encouraged her to do better in every single thing that Ruby did and does in her lifetime.

Ruby was not aloud to attend an all white elementary school. Her dad did not help her out much though. He did not want her to take the test to determine whether she wa sable to go to an all white school. But she hated it, Ruby only lived about 5 blocks away from an all white school but had to go to a black school that was several miles away. When Ruby dad said yes to taking the test and she passed the test she still had it very rough. Ruby faced extreme racism on her way to school. So Ruby had to walk to school with guards surrounding her.

Ruby was a very joyful kid even with everything she went through. That is why she is one of the most important person around. She helped blacks be able to live life. She helped them be able to get a good education to be able to get a good job to support there family when they are older. But Ruby wouldn't be able to do it without her bright personal qualities
