Ruby Bridges
"At the tender age of six, Ruby Bridges advanced the cause of civil rights in November 1960 when she became the first African American student to integrate an elementary school in the South. [...] Ruby and her mother were escorted by four federal marshals to the school every day that year [...] and all year, she was a class of one. Ruby ate lunch alone and sometimes played with her teacher at recess, but she never missed a day of school that year." - Debra Michals, PhD (National Women's History Museum)
