Melba Pattillo and Ruby Bridges: Two Heroes of School Integration

“Students will: read about the kids who took part in early school integration efforts in Little Rock, Arkansas, and New Orleans; read recent reflections by two of those former students; role-play an interview with Melba Pattillo, one of nine students who integrated Little Rock High School; read background and look at photos about the integration efforts in Little Rock; and,
put themselves in the shoes of those kids who were pioneers in school integration and write a diary entry one of them might have written after the first week in her new school.”
