Ruby Bridges Walk to School Day
November 14, 2023

What an incredible morning in Bethel! Today, hundreds of Bethel students came together for the Ruby Bridges Walk to School Day! Ruby was the first Black/African American child to integrate New Orleans’ all white public school system in 1960. Ruby was 6-years-old when she made that courageous walk into school.

A special shoutout to all of the parents, friends, neighborhood pups and our special guests – Senator James Manning, Bethel School Board member Debi Farr and County Commissioner Pat Farr for joining the journey and inspiring our future leaders. 

BEF is proud to sponsor this important community event. We hope to see you out there next year!
