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. Pictured: Freedom Riders hang
posters from a bus.
Freedom Riders, airing Monday, May 16 on GPB, is the first feature-length film
about this courageous band of civil-rights activists who stand as a testament
to what can result from the incredible combination of personal conviction and
the courage to organize against all odds.
GPB is proud to partner with the
Georgia Humanities Council for advanced screenings of the documentary around
the state and to welcome college students who are taking part in a reenactment
ride from May 6 - 16 that traces the original Freedom Riders’ route through Georgia.
Explore the wealth of educational support resources designed around the show.
