February 3 Ruby Bridges, born September 8, 1954, is a lifelong civil rights activist. At just six years old, she integrated an all white elementary school in New Orleans, Louisiana. Ruby had to walk into school escorted by four federal marshals as crowds yelled terrible things at her. She says of her walk into school, “I wanted to use my experience to teach kids that racism has no place in hearts and minds.” She is now chair of the Ruby Bridges Foundation, which she formed in 1999 to promote "the values of tolerance, respect, and appreciation of all differences".
