In the summer of 1961, a group of students boarded buses to challenge segregation. This journey began a revolution in the civil rights movement. Creating a “force” that spanned the divisions of race, these young people fought for one common goal – equality. This event and others that followed inspired thousands from across the country to gather for the Freedom Summer Project of 1964. Travel back to meet these brave students who earned their place in history as… the Freedom Riders.
