Is a powerful, harrowing and ultimately inspirational story of six months in
1961 that changed America forever. From May until November 1961, more than 400
black and white Americans risked their lives—and many endured savage beatings
and imprisonment—for simply traveling together on buses and trains as they
journeyed through the Deep South. Deliberately violating Jim Crow laws, the
Freedom Riders met with bitter racism and mob violence along the way, sorely
testing their belief in nonviolent activism.
