A BLACK HISTORY MONTH EVENT

Presentation of children's movie, Ruby Bridges.

Rated PG - 96 min.

Starring  Penelope Ann Miller, Kevin Pollak, Michael Beach

The true story of Ruby Bridges, an African-American girl who, in 1960 at age 6, helped to integrate the all-white schools of New Orleans. Although she was the only black girl to come to the school she was sent to, (and since all the white mothers pulled their children out of class, she was the only one there, period), and though she faced a crowd of angry white citizens every day, she emerged unscathed, physically or emotionally. Encouraged by her teacher, a white woman from the North named Barbara Henry, and her mother, Lucille, and with her own quiet strength, she eventually broke down a century-old barrier forever, a pivotal moment in the civil-rights movement.


For Children, Grades K-6, with Parent/Caregiver.

A BLACK HISTORY MONTH EVENT

Valley Stream Book Club will meet.  Title to be discussed is The Twelve Tribes of Hattie, by Ayana Mathis.

In 1923, fifteen-year-old Hattie Shepherd flees Georgia and settles in Philadelphia, hoping for a chance at a better life. Instead, she marries a man who will bring her nothing but disappointment and watches helplessly as her firstborn twins succumb to an illness a few pennies could have prevented. Hattie gives birth to nine more children whom she raises with grit and mettle and not an ounce of the tenderness they crave. She vows to prepare them for the calamitous difficulty they are sure to face in their later lives, to meet a world that will not love them, a world that will not be kind. Captured here in twelve luminous narrative threads, their lives tell the story of a mother's monumental courage and the journey of a nation.

For Adult Readers.

Registration required at the Adult Reference Desk so copies of the book can be obtained for readers.
