INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - They're one of the most iconic images from the Civil Rights Movement: a little girl being walked to and from school by federal marshals when southern schools were ordered to integrate.
That little girl is all grown-up, and Thursday she was reunited with one of the marshals who escorted her safely to school.
Ruby Bridges' story is already a part of "The Power of Children" Exhibit.
Thursday, she and one of the men who helped her change history sat down at the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis.
Charles Burks is 91 years old now.
He's a Hoosier and in 1960 was called to serve in New Orleans during integration.
Ruby says sharing their story is important to inspire today's children to find their own voice.
“We have to inspire all of our kids to come together to create a new movement,” Bridges said, “so that we that are good and of like-minds, we can help to fight the evil out there, that’s plaguing our communities.”
“It was a privilege to do what I did,” Burks said, “even though it was a line of duty thing. Everybody said it was just another job to do, but it was a wonderful job.”
Charles Burks is the sole surviving marshal from that day.
