Darrell Grant’s Step by Step: The Ruby Bridges Suite is a musical suite comprised of nine musical movements framed by narratives that tell the story of Ruby Bridges, the trailblazing six-year-old African American girl who integrated the New Orleans Public Schools in 1960. Images of the young girl escorted by federal marshalls as she made her way to school have become iconic symbols of the Civil Rights Movement.
