Ruby Bridges: Her Story
Saturday, May 21, 2 pm
Philip Hall, University of Washington-Tacoma
Join Ruby Bridges, the little girl who was the inspiration for Norman Rockwell’s painting The Problem We All Live With. Now an adult and deeply dedicated to fighting racism, Bridges visits Tacoma to share her remarkable, moving story of that tumultuous time in American History. Come hear about her experience with integration during the 50th Anniversary year of that fateful first walk into her previously all-white school. Cost: $15 ($10 for members, $5 for students).
Thanks for spreading the word!
