Ruby Bridges Walk to School Day

Next year marks the 70th anniversary of Brown v. Topeka Board of Education. Ruby Bridges stepped into the history books in 1960 when, at the age of 6,  she integrated William Frantz Elementary School in New Orleans, becoming a national icon for the civil rights movement.

Governor Kelly will proclaim November 14th, 2023 as Kansas “Ruby Bridges Walk to School Day.” Join us and other students across the country who are continuing the movement to end racism and unify our communities by walking to school on November 14th in honor of Ruby, her work, and the work still to be done.
