This is Your Time

by Ruby Bridges - £8.99  Pushkin Press (2021)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781911590590 | ISBN 10: 1911590596

On November 14, 1960, at the age of six, Ruby Bridges became the first black child to integrate an all-white school in New Orleans. Escorted by federal marshals past angry segregationist protesters, young Ruby attended William Frantz Elementary and earned a place in civil rights history.
 
Sixty years later, Ruby has written an impassioned letter to young people engaging in the fight for racial equality.
 
Her words, a call to action imbued with love and grace, are paired with black-and-white photographs from then-and now.
 
This Is Your Time will inspire readers as the struggle for liberty and justice for all continues, and the powerful legacy of Ruby Bridges endures.
