Marblehead students join national Ruby Bridges Walk 

Students at the Brown, Glover and Village schools joined in the national Ruby Bridges Walk to School Day on Tuesday, Nov. 14. On the same day in 1960, Bridges stepped into history books when she integrated William Frantz Elementary School in New Orleans, becoming a national icon for the Civil Rights Movement. She was 6 years old. 

Marblehead students first read Bridges’ book about her experience and then walked around their schools together.
