60TH ANNIVERSARY OF DESEGREGATION
Tell Them Your Story
Thank Them With Your Video Message
On November 14, 1960, four six-year-old girls (Leona Tate, Ruby Bridges, Tessie Prevost and Gail Etienne) became the first African Americans to desegregate formerly white only elementary schools in New Orleans and the Deep South. As part of the 60th Anniversary of Desegregation celebration, we launched the Because Of You I AM video message awareness social media campaign with a Call To Action. This campaign will feature video messages of gratitude, congratulations and inspiring personal testimonies dedicated to Civil Rights Pioneers The New Orleans Four. Be a part of celebrating our beloved living treasures who paved the way and CHANGED America forever.
