It was November of 1960 when 6 year old Ruby was finally allowed to attend a desegregated school in New Orleans, after being “leveled” in her academics skills, and “trained” on how to deal with rejection from white kids.  She had psychological supervision, plus the four federal marshalls escorting her in and out of classes for the year.  She was the first African American to attend the all white school, where only one teacher would accept her and taught her in a classroom by herself, no other children.  She is now an American civil rights activist.
