This was a terrific movie, very tastefully done.
M. Carter
This way she can see why Barack Obama becoming the 44th president of the US was such an emotional moment for african Americans.
T. Bostic
Ruby is 6 in the movie, but we watched this with my 71 year old parents and they loved it as well.

Have your students read Ruby's book and then show this film. It illustrates not only the stuggle of integration in personal terms, but other topics related to history and government as well. The supremacy of federal over state laws, the political and social climate of the times. My students had trouble believing this story really happened the way it did, that is untill they pulled up the actual photos on the internet. I cannot recomend this one highly enough.

I am a first grade teacher and have used this video for a unit on Ruby Bridges in first and second grade. The students have responded very well to it, and it has created for some unbelievable conversation that you'd never expect from this age level. I usually break the viewing up into a few different days, because it is a lengthy film, but it has been one of my favorite videos to show each year. This is a must have for any teacher because it illustrates what courage and strength can accomplish, even at a young age.

I am a 7th grader from California and my History teacher showed this video in class. I found it to be one of the best videos I have ever watched. It taught me so much and that day I went home and did more research about Ruby Bridges. A few weeks later I decided to do my History Field Day progect on her since the topic was 'New Fronties.' I also bought the movie with my own money and showed it to my brother, who was for some reason kind of prejudice, and since then he has never said one word about not liking a black person. This movie taught me so much and even my parents ask to watch it over and over again. It is heartwrenching every time I watch it and it showed my brother what hard times black people went through and that they do have feelings also. This movie is OUTSTANDING and I recommend it to anyone!

We showed this video to two classes of fifth and sixth graders. It is _EXCELLENT_. A very well-done, attention-grabbing and thought-provoking story of this story arising from a sad time of American history.

This movie is an important movie for anyone to watch. It shows what it was like to be Ruby Bridges, the first black student to be desegregated. She had to endure tortures that an adult would not want to go through. It also shows the struggles the family had to go through as well. If you haven't seen it, I recommend you watch it.

This movie is such an important part of our multi-cultural history that must be shared! This brave little girl has a greater faith and more forgiving spirit than can be imagined. She is an example of how God's loves works. This is a movie that I will watch at least 2 or 3 times a year to remind me that no matter the circumstances are, faith and love can overcome anything!

I think Ruby Bridges is a great movie. It inspired me alot. It tells you a lot of things. Its a great movie for kids and adults. It tells you to do good to people that dislike you or do bad things to you. For example, the time Ruby prayed for the people who said terrible things about her. It also teaches about love and standing up for your rights. This movie made me cry. It sad how color can cause so much trouble. When you think about it you would realize White and blacks have a whole lot in common. I'd like to meet Ruby and let her know how brave and inspiring she could be.

Ruby Bridges is the first movie I've ever wanted to see over and over again. The first time I watched it was in 5th grade. When I saw it, I was really inspired. It shows us all Black women, men, girls and boys can make a difference in this world and do not be afraid of it.
