Students in Fairfax County, Virginia, are walking to or from school Wednesday to honor a historic act of courage. In 1960, there was little support for integrating schools in New Orleans, Louisiana. But, six-year-old Ruby Bridges’ parents sent her anyway, and she became the first Black student to integrate an elementary school in the South. 
U.S. Deputy Marshals escort six-year-old Ruby Bridges from William Frantz Elementary School in New Orleans, La., in Nov. 1960.
According to wtop.com, "Now, 61 years after U.S. Marshals walked with Bridges to school, students and families in Fairfax County are honoring her courage by walking to or from school as part of Ruby Bridges Walk to School Day. Sally Smallwood, a Fairfax County Safe Routes to School project organizer, said kids will learn Ruby Bridges’ story in school — “For kids to understand who she was,” Smallwood said." As per wtop.com, "Ruby Bridges Walk to School Day is recognized in many school systems around the country. Smallwood said Fairfax County is excited to help mark the important event in its efforts to improve equity and diversity in the school district. The walk is part of a county program called Walking Wednesday, which started last year to encourage children to get out and walk around their neighborhood before sitting down for a full day of virtual classes."
