The William Frantz Elementary school in New Orleans' Lower Ninth Ward is where John Steinbeck went to see the white mothers who protested its integration in 1960. For months the epicenter of the civil rights struggle, the school was put out of action in 2005 by Hurricane Katrina's floodwaters. Norman Rockwell's painting of little Ruby Bridges walking to school flanked by U.S. marshals is an iconic image of what happened at the school each morning for weeks. I went to the school on Saturday morning, Nov. 6, 2010. Read the details of my trip are in my Amazon.com book "Dogging Steinbeck." Or go to TruthAboutCharley.com
