Lucille Bridges Death – Obituary | Lucille Bridges Dead – Passed Away

Lucille Bridges Death – Dead: A great loss was made known to InsideEko. As friends and families of the deceased are mourning the passing of their loved and cherished Lucille Bridges.

Today, Lexthomresearch and Development is saddened by the news of the loss of Civil Rights trailblazer Lucille Bridges, mother of Ruby Bridges.

Mrs. Lucille Bridges grew up in Mississippi, and later moved to New Orleans.
Desegregation in New Orleans was successful, due to the determination and dedication of Mrs. Lucille Bridges, who fought for equality, and equity in education.
In 1960, Mrs. Bridges allowed her 6 year old daughter, Ruby, to integrate the all-white William Frantz Elementary School in New Orleans despite death threats to her family, her husband losing his job, and mounting hate.
Mrs. Bridges stood firm on allowing little Ruby to integrate Frantz Elementary because she believed it would be key to education of African Americans and a turning point in race relations for our country as a whole.

Rest in love Mrs. Bridges. We are forever grateful.

Today we mourn the loss of one of the mothers of the Civil Rights Movement in New Orleans with the passing of Lucille Bridges — mother of five, including Ruby Bridges, who as a first-grader in 1960 was one of six African-American children to integrate the all-white William Frantz Elementary School. Lucille’s strength was unbounded during this period. Her husband was reluctant when the request came from the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) to participate. Lucille insisted, seeing the action as an opportunity to help all Black children, and walked Ruby, with federal marshals, past chanting and taunting white protesters and to the schoolhouse. Mother and daughter both revealed their character and courage. Today, folks recall Ruby as the little girl depicted in Norman Rockwell’s painting ‘The Problem We All Live With,’ and more recently might see a reimagining of the image now including Vice President-elect Kamala Harris walking alongside little Ruby. I think I speak for all mothers who want the best for their children when I hope for the same moral courage, bravery and love as that of Lucille Bridges. May she rest in God’s perfect peace.

And now looking up more information on Ruby Bridges I see the announcement shared just an hour ago that her mother passed away.
God bless Lucille for her strength and the beautiful history she let her daughter set for our country.

Again. History is long long ago. My mother is a few weeks younger than Ruby Bridges. My grandmother is not a full year younger than Lucille Bridges.

This generation is passing and deserve our honor.

Let this sink in – the *mother* of Ruby Bridges just passed away.
Segregation is a recent, lived experience for so many people and we act like it’s ancient history.

Rest in power, Lucille. Your daughter inherited your bravery and we’re all better for it.

Ruby Bridges lost her mom today.
Can you even imagine her courage?

Rest in Power, Lucille Bridges

Ms Bridges is an American heroine. Just imagine— what a tough and dangerous decision she made for her daughter, Ruby, all the little Black girls in New Orleans and across the nation to follow. And she lived long enough to see a Black woman become VP. RIP Lucille Bridges.
