Garden Talks: Ruby Bridges

  • Martin Theatre, Ravinia Festival, Highland Park 200 Ravinia Park Road Highland Park, IL, 60035 United States (map)

Ruby Bridges has worked for equal access to high-quality education since her first day of first grade, when 6-year-old Ruby, surrounded by armed U.S. marshals, integrated William Frantz Elementary School in New Orleans. Through activism and her foundation, Bridges shows how giving all students access to careers in science, math, and technology can inspire environmental and social change.
