Saturday Children’s Story Hour

Ruby Bridges Goes to School: My True Story book cover

Travel across time and visit different parts of the world through the magic of reading. Our books acquaint us with people, places, and events, (both real and fictional) that shape our understanding of African Americans, others in the African diaspora, and peoples of the African continent.

Ruby Bridges, author of Ruby Bridges Goes to School: My True Story, remembers a time when black and white children could not be friends or go to school together. (August 3)
