Festival of Black Dolls Show and Sale

Little Ruby is a 12-inch porcelain doll-tribute to Ruby Bridges. The text in the above image reads:
But there was a school
for white children
even closer to my house
than the school
for black children.
It was the William Frantz
Elementary School.

The governor said:
“Ruby Bridges should be allowed to
go to the William Frantz school.”

"Little Ruby" was made by the ladies of American Black Beauty Doll Artists Club of Oakland, California.  The doll is a tribute to Ruby Bridges, the first African American child to integrate an elementary school in the American South (William Frantz Elementary School on November 14, 1960).

American Black Beauty Doll Artists Club is holding their annual Festival of Black Dolls Show and Sale on November 4, 2017.  Attendees will have an opportunity to win "Little Ruby" in a raffle during the show.  Raffle tickets at $5 each will be sold at show.
