The Freedom Rides eventually encompassed a campaign that lasted seven months, involved over 400 African Americans and whites, and desegregated dozens of bus and train stations from Virginia to Texas. They galvanized every branch of the Civil Rights Movement, binding its past to its future, its tactics to its soul. –Diane McWhorter
Protesters faced a bus fire-bombing, brutal beatings and imprisonment. The second side contains the story, nine contemporary photographs of Riders including Rep. John Lewis, plus all Riders listed alphabetically, for easy access to mug shots.
