Join the CBE Social Action Committee for a social justice evening with the screening of the movie Ruby Bridges. Ruby Bridges(1998) tells the story of how a six-year-old Black girl integrated a New Orleans segregated school in 1960. Of course, Ruby did not achieve this feat alone– there was the NAACP that chose her; four US Marshals who kept back the angry mob of haters bent on lynching her; a kind-hearted White teacher who pushed back against her racist superiors; a famous psychiatrist to help her with the stress; and, most of all, her courageous mother, who shared the deep faith that gave the girl the strength to persist. We are asking for a suggested donation of $10 per person to be given to The Carver in Norwalk.
The evening will begin at 6:45 pm with a short Havdalah service followed by the movie at 7 pm. There will be a movie discussion after the movie. Snacks and dessert will be served.
