Freedom Riders Teacher Workshop
Threatened. Attacked. Jailed. From May until November 1961, more than 400 black and white Americans risked their lives by 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.
