    Analysis and comparisons

     

    Ruby is wearing a white dress like the skin of white people. She is wearing “only white” to mix and to integrate a new life.

     

    She was determined like a soldier going to war. I think she is marching because she is walking in the same position as the 4 marshals.

     

    She is wearing a white dress like at a wedding ceremony. Maybe it's an echo to the end of another law. Black and white people couldn't marry together. Or, it can be a symbol for a new future with another person together.

    Ruby Bridges

     

    The document is an extract from a movie. In this extract, a little black girl (Ruby) went* to a white school.

    There was* a demonstration against her and people were* extremely violent:

    A man had* a confederate flag. A white woman spat* at Ruby and said*: “I want you to die”. There was* a racist insult on the wall (“Nigger”) and the word K.K.K (a racist organisation). There were* many placards with racist sentences / slogans. At the end, a man threw* a tomato at Ruby.

     

    The girl was* brave. She stood* very courageous but she was* shocked when she saw* the tomato.
