Last night I had the opportunity to have a (partially) private interview with Ruby Bridges. I cannot put into words how incredible this was. Here is a link to the story I wrote for The Village Green.
This is a woman I have admired for years and wrote about her in 2013, long before I ever thought I’d have the chance to meet her in person!
She is an incredible role model and I am thrilled to have been in her presence.
