Ruby! The Story of Ruby Bridges
By Christina Ham. Music by Gary Rue.
A SteppingStone Theatre Original, New World Premiere Version!
In 1960, the front lines of the struggle for Civil Rights ran right up to the front steps of an elementary school in New Orleans.
Imagine you’re a six-year-old ready to start first grade, and suddenly you’re in all the papers, and it seems that half the world wants to stop you from going to school. It would take all the courage you can muster just to get out of bed.
But little Ruby Bridges faces the danger and goes to school day after day. The true story of Ruby’s struggle is as inspirational today as it was 50 years ago.
