This Is Your Time

Bookseller Recommendation

This Is Your Time

“I first learned of Ruby Bridges in elementary school, but her story was told through the lens of a lesson learned and an issue already fixed. That is not the case. This Is Your Time is exactly the message of hope that is necessary for real, ongoing change. Though short in length, it's packed to the gills with history, bravery, and hope. Ruby's own narration is powerful beyond measure, urging grown-ups to stop spreading hate, and reminding kids they don't have to listen to that grown-up disease.”

Description

Inspired by the recent wave of activism led by young people fighting for racial justice, civil rights icon Ruby Bridges--who, at the age of six, was the first black child to integrate an all-white elementary school in New Orleans--shares her story and offers a powerful call to action with this elegant gift book.

Written as a letter from civil rights activist and icon Ruby Bridges to the reader, This Is Your Time is both a recounting of Ruby's experience as a child who had no choice but to be escorted to class by federal marshals when she was chosen as one of the first black students to integrate New Orleans' all-white public school system and an appeal to generations to come to effect change.

Ruby's honest and impassioned words, imbued with love and grace, serve as a moving reminder that "what can inspire tomorrow often lies in our past." This Is Your Time will electrify people of all ages as the struggle for liberty and justice for all continues, and the powerful legacy of Ruby Bridges endures.
