Freedom Riders - free film viewing

Date: October 4, 2012
Time: 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Location: James W. Miller Learning Resources Center Auditorium 122
Description: Cultural.

Despite two earlier Supreme Court decisions that mandated the desegregation of interstate travel facilities, black Americans in 1961 continued to endure hostility and racism while traveling through the South. The Freedom Riders embarked on the Rides knowing the danger but firmly committed to the ideals of non-violent protest, aware that their actions could provoke a savage response but willing to put their lives on the line for the cause of justice.
