Juneteenth Movie Night
Join the Center in our Juneteenth Celebration for a fun, family-friendly movie night. The feature will be “Ruby Bridges.” There will be concessions and an open room to get comfy in. (All rights belong to the Disney Corporation in the showing of this film)
This film presents the real-life tale of young Ruby Bridges (Chaz Monet), one of the first African-American children to attend an integrated school in the Deep South. At only age 6, Ruby is selected to attend an all-white school in New Orleans, causing an uproar in the racially divided region. Among the people who try to help Ruby adjust to the tense situation are teacher Barbara Henry (Penelope Ann Miller) and Dr. Robert Coles (Kevin Pollak), a child psychiatrist.
