The Freedom Riders

Watch the full episode. See more American Experience.

Celebrate the bravery of the Freedom Riders by watching the movie tonight on PBS. If you aren't in the States, please visit the links. It may be available via the website soon. There are excellent links on the interactive website for you to teach children & young adults about this crucial turning point in the Civil Rights Movement.

Check the link to see if the traveling exhibit will be coming to a town near you.
