For the fourth year, the National Civil Rights Museum is proud to partner with civil rights activist Ruby Bridges-Hall to present the Ruby Bridges Reading Festival. Children pre-K through elementary school not only receive free books at the festival, but can also enjoy storytelling and entertainment. Educators, with their valid school ID, can also get free books for their classroom. The event will feature fun activities including face painting, balloon animals, dance and musical performances and food trucks.
