RUBY: The Story of Ruby Bridges

Charles A. Melton Center 501 E Miner Street, West Chester

In partnership with Revival Theatre Company, we are honored to host “The Ruby Bridges Story” on June 19th at 7 pm. Ruby Bridges was only 6 years old when the Civil Rights movement came hammering at her door, making her the first black child to attend an all-white elementary school in New Orleans. With songs inspired by The Shirelles, Sam Cooke and Smokey Robinson, this musical explores a little girl’s unbeatable courage in the face of adversity as she helped to lead the Civil Rights movement up the front steps and into the classrooms of an elementary school in New Orleans.
