She Went to School... And Taught the Nation a Lesson.
Disney presents the inspiring true story of one little girl whose strength and dignity during the racially charged 1960s helped change history!
When bright six-year-old Ruby is chosen to be the first African-American to integrate her local New Orleans elementary school, she is subjected to the true ugliness of racism for the very first time. But guided by the love of her mother (Lela Rochon - Why Do Fools Fall in Love, Waiting to Exhale) and father (Michael Beach - Soul Food, TV's Third Watch), Ruby's heroic struggle for a better education becomes a lesson for us all!
An acclaimed and entertaining motion picture also starring Penelope Ann Miller (The Gun in Bety Lou's Handbag, Carlito's Way) and Kevin Pollack (The Usual Suspects, A Few Good Men) - you'll want to share this remarkable story of courage and pride with your family!
