(New Orleans - November 10, 2020)
– On behalf of New Orleans Public Schools, we extend our sincerest condolences to Ruby Bridges on the passing of her mother, Lucille Bridges. We can only imagine the strength, courage, and determination that it took for Ms. Lucille Bridges to allow her daughter to endure the taunts and other expressions of hatred she experienced, as she sought to be the first black child to desegregate William Frantz Elementary School. As we approach the 60th Anniversary of that fateful day, we thank both Lucille and Ruby Bridges for opening the door so that others could follow and have more opportunities that would have not been possible. As we have conversations and events this week around the desegregation of schools, I ask that we also keep Ruby Bridges in our thoughts and prayers.
