Bridges used to be 6 years previous in 1960 when she used to be accompanied to faculty through U.S. marshals.
The landmark second within the civil rights motion used to be immortalized within the Rockwell portray, “The Problem We All Live With.”
It depicts Bridges being escorted through 4 U.S. marshals, a splattered tomato and a racial epithet at the wall at the back of her.
Bridges gained the Presidential Citizens Medal in 2001 and is the writer of the 1999 memoir “Through My Eyes.”
