Ruby Bridges recognized as a woman of the century | Women of the Century 1


Six-year-old Ruby Bridges became a civil rights icon when she walked by angry white mobs as part of desegregating public schools in Louisiana in 1960.

Bridges, now 65 and a civil rights speaker, author and advocate, wasn't the first Black child to integrate a school. She was born in 1954, the same year the Supreme Court ended "separate but equal" education of African American children in Brown v. Board of Education. Southern states ignored or blocked the order.

    Thank you for your courage and inspiration Ms. Bridges. You look young and beautiful.

  18. My joy knows bound, I never thought that one day i will live on earth cured of this virus. I have been suffering from this deadly virus “HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS” since 8 months ago. I have spent a lot of money on drugs and going from one hospital to another, hospital has been my most visited place where constant check up have been my hobby not until one day, i decided to share my situation to a very close friend of mine and she was very upset with me for not telling her ever since that she is aware of one doctor called Dr.Akhigbe who helps people in curing their HERPES. quickly i contacted his that was given to me by Carolyn, just to give him a test, i spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which i did, he told me that he was going to prepare and send some herbal cure to me, which he did and there after i received it and after using the herbal cure within 2weeks and few days i was totally cured, i had to go back to the same hospital that I have been going before to confirm my cure and behold I was confirmed negative by my doctor, so today I am here to spread the good-news of my life on how Dr. Akhigbe saved me from the nightmare and outbreaks of HERPES VIRUS. You can contact him via email: or Whats-app: +2349046230269 If you are still suffering from this deadly virus…I believe you’re going to be happy and feel alive again just as I am right now.
