Civil Rights Legacy Tour: Ruby Bridges, Chapter 1
Tacoma Arts Live is pleased to present Ruby Bridges, an original all-ages play by Milo Mowery. Follow six-year old Ruby as she braves racist mobs to become the first African American student to racially integrate an elementary school in New Orleans. This play is commissioned as part of Tacoma Arts Live’s Civil Rights Legacy Tour. Guided by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s assertion that “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere,” this program serves more than 20,000 students each year with inspiring live theater.
