An inspiring historical account of six-year-old Ruby, whose exceptional grades, awarded her the opportunity to become one of the first African American children to integrate an all-White public school in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1960. Ruby, a courageous child, faced immense adversity during this period when racial unrest, blatant racism, and anti-Black mobs were prevalent, and pervasive in the Deep South. She was “chosen by the NAACP to be a pioneer in breaking down the walls of segregation.“

Euzhan Palcy directed this Disney film, written by Toni Ann Johnson, about an exceptional little girl whose supportive parents and community, faith, and spiritual resiliency transformed the course of education in public schools while making history.

Starring: Chaz Monet (Ruby), Michael Beach (Father), Lela Rochon (Mother), Euzhan Palcy (Director)
