But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.
- Luke 6: 27-28


Ruby Bridges at 6 years old modeled this amazing practice during the heart of the Civil Rights movement ... go deeper and read about her courage. •

Happy birthday month to Ruby Bridges, I celebrate you. It’s so crazy how this was only about 60 years ago!!! The first black child to integrate a white school in the United States ONLY happened about 60 years ago!!!! My grandmother was born before she was, my grandmother went through segregation. I am privileged to be able to sit in integrated classrooms, I am privileged to have had some of the best black teachers teach me at an integrated school!!! This is one of the many, many reasons #BLM so much, segregation literally just stopped happening in schools. Racism is at an all time high right now and we need to all see that. We need to know our history. #BLM #rubybridges #itsherbirthdaymonth #blacklivesmatter #knowourhistory #educationispower

Une petite lecture marquante 💜 .. L’album « RUBY, tête haute », réalisé par Irène Cohen-Janca et Marc Daniau, est tout bonnement magnifique. Les illustrations sont sublimes et inspirées du tableau « The Problem we all live with » de Norman Rockwell (que j’adore). Cet album raconte l’histoire de Ruby Bridges, l’une des premières fillettes noires à avoir été envoyée dans une école pour blancs, dans les années 1960 aux Etats-Unis. Vous l’aurez compris, cet album raconte une histoire vraie et nous rappelle de ne jamais oublier la ségrégation dont ont été victimes des milliers de Noirs... 😞 . .
Je recommande vivement cette lecture, nommée pour le Prix des Incorruptibles et soutenue par Amnesty International dont je suis donatrice. ❤️ #rubybridges #rubytetehaute #album #cohenjanca #daniau #amnestyinternational #lesincorruptibles #leseditionsdeselephants #segregation #normanrockwell #theproblemwealllivewith #book #lecture #goodreads #bookstagram #instabook #livre

Dear Bronwyn and Joshua,
Recognize your privilege and use it to make the world a better place for every person.
Always choose LOVE.
Always USE YOUR VOICE to FIGHT for JUSTICE. “So, if anyone ever tells you no, if anyone ever says your voice isn’t important or your dreams are too big, remember these women.
THEY PERSISTED and so should you.” - Chelsea Clinton (last page of “She Persisted”) #ourchildren #oursons #ourdaughters #marchforourlives #shepersisted #shepersistedaroundtheworld #chelseaclinton #elizabethwarren #harriettubman #helenkeller #claralemlich #nelliebly #virginiaapgar #mariatallchief #claudettecolvin #rubybridges #rubybridgesfoundation #margaretchasesmith #sallyride #florencegriffithjoyner #oprahwinfrey #oprah #soniasotomayor #alexandraboiger #equality #webelieveinequality #airingoutthedirtylaundry #sayit #airitout #persist

A favorite classroom decoration by an amazing local artist, Latonya Jackson; Focal point when we learn about the history of education #rubybridges #history #education #leadersoftomorrow #bravery #careerandtechnicaleducation #art #artofinstagram #classroomdecor

This woman was the first black child to go to desegregated school. She was spit on and cursed at. A child!!! When someone tells you racism doesn't exist anymore remind them that jim crow laws were in effect when their grandparents were young. #RubyBridges

This latest work of mine was commissioned by The Peoples Forum in NYC. I was asked to create a work on the theme of resist to educate/ educate to resist while highlighting inspiring possibilities in education. I wanted to focus on how education has been used as a tool to colonize and must always be a tool to liberate. Most education quotes didn't seem to work for what i was trying to convey. Finally found the answer in the words of our beloved bell hooks. There is too much that went into this piece to explain here. But I will mention that it is the first time I have painted my children. The bell hooks quotes are a meditation on who we trust with our education, for what purpose and on whose or what terms. Puerto Rico, the hurricane, the clearing, the ancestors, Obatala and Oya are up in here too. More later.
Gracias @1claud9 for the solidarity cross -charco and for lighting the way with love at Peoples Forum and everywhere.

Our #womencrushwednesday this week: Ruby Bridges! This civil rights icon was the first African-American to desegregate an all white elementary school in Louisiana. She is an activist, and only 64 years young! Her strength exemplified as a child continues to inspire us to fight against institutionalized racism! #intersectionalfeminism #rubybridges
