Ruby Bridges was six years old when the Civil Rights Movement came hammering at her door — choosing her as the first African-American child to integrate an all-white elementary school in the South. When white families pulled their children from her class, Ruby and her first-grade teacher, Mrs. Henry, forged ahead undaunted.
With seven brand new songs inspired by The Shirelles, Sam Cooke, and Smokey Robinson, this play explores a little girl’s unbeatable courage in the face of adversity as she helped lead the Civil Rights Movement up the front steps and into the classroom. Produced in collaboration with Montgomery Public Schools.
