Ruby Bridges' Victory

Oakland Public Library

Today's Victory is Tomorrow's Legacy: Ruby Bridges' Victory Made a Difference for All. This exhibit is based upon Ruby Bridges' integration of the all-white William Frantz Elementary School in Louisiana in 1960. The exhibit features the facsimile of a 1960s classroom and features artifacts that tell the story of Ruby Bridges and the integration of classrooms in the Oakland Unified School District in the 1950s-1960s.


This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Ruby Bridges' Victory :

This exhibition considers the monumental significance of young African American Ruby Bridge’s integration at the all-white William Frantz Elementary School in Louisiana in 1960, complete with a facsimile recreation of a 1960s classroom and artifacts that tell the story of Bridges, as well as the history of integration in the Oakland Unified School District in the 1950s-1960s.
