AMERICAN EXPERIENCE: Freedom Riders: The Movement

The Freedom Riders represented a cross-section of America — black and white, young and old, religious and secular. “The Freedom Rides were trying to say to America: we are a diverse country — let’s act like a diverse country, where every part of the diversity is equal, and is treated equally,” says Freedom Rider Rabbi Israel Dresner. Watch the broadcast premiere of FREEDOM RIDERS on Monday, May 16th, 2011 at 9/8 c (check your local PBS listings).
