Ruby's friend, psychiatrist Dr. Robert Coles, wrote "The Story of Ruby Bridges."
At William Frantz, Ruby attended an empty classroom. Some parents refused to let their children go to the integrated school. The children who did attend were separated from her classroom. But Ruby made friends. Her teacher, Mrs. Henry, and a psychiatrist, Dr. Robert Coles, were very supportive of the little girl's efforts. People from around the country sent Ruby letters. Some donated money and assistance to the Bridges family. The determined Ruby Bridges did not miss a day of school that year.

En William Frantz, Ruby asistió a un aula vacía. Algunos padres se negaron a dejar que sus hijos fueran a la escuela integrada. Los niños que asistieron estaban separados de su salón de clases. Pero Ruby hizo amigos. Su maestra, la señora Henry, y un psiquiatra, el Dr. Robert Coles, apoyaron mucho los esfuerzos de la niña. Personas de todo el país enviaron cartas a Ruby. Algunos donaron dinero y asistencia a la familia Bridges. La decidida Ruby Bridges no se perdió un día de clase.
