From A Slight Change of Plans: Civil Rights Icon Ruby Bridges

We’re sharing a special episode from another podcast, A Slight Change of Plans, from Pushkin

Industries. In this preview, civil rights icon Ruby Bridges shares what it was like to be the first

African-American student to attend an all-white elementary school in Louisiana in 1960. Ruby

was just six years old at the time, and it would be years before she fully appreciated her role in

advancing civil rights in America. Hear the full episode, and more from A Slight Change of

Plans, at https://podcasts.pushkin.fm/scp5?sid=unladylike.
