“Do not be afraid. This is your time in history. Keep your eyes on the prize. And at all costs, stay united.”

– Ruby Bridges

 

To honor Black History Month, more than three dozen supporters joined us to create a timely virtual conversation with American civil rights icon and leader Ruby Bridges.

Community Initiative Director Karen Kariuki spoke with Ruby Bridges about her life, experiences, and thoughts on fostering greater understanding, dialogue, and inclusivity in all of our communities. The conversation was inspired by an 8 year old New Canaan resident who wrote a letter to Ms. Bridges and brought together an entire community to take action as a result of a racially-motivated incident that he experienced at Mead Park that made him sad.

Join us at 11 am or 2 pm for screenings of the 45-minute interview with Ms. Bridges, followed by a moderated discussion with Community Initiative Director Karen Kariuki.

Additional screenings are available on February 1, 8, 9, 10, and 11.

 

We are profoundly grateful for the support of the many individuals and institutions from across the nonprofit, educational, faith, business and private philanthropy sectors in New Canaan and beyond who made this program possible, including East School, South School, West School, Cranbury Elementary School PTO, The Children’s School, NBC Sports, New Canaan Library, New Canaan Community Foundation, Fairfield County’s Community Foundation, Ridgefield Alliance, St. Aloysius Church, The Congregational Church of New Canaan, St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, First Presbyterian Church of New Canaan, Temple Sinai, Grace Community Church, and B kind Foundation.
