Alabama Stories: Freedom Riders

Premiere Date:Monday, February 22, 2010

In the not so distant past, blacks traveling in to the South had to endure local segregation laws in bus and train stations. When the U.S. Supreme Court ruled segregation in interstate travel unconstitutional, black and white students came together to test that ruling in a movement known as the Freedom Rides. Rhonda Colvin examines the days the movement came to Alabama and interviews witnesses and some of the riders themselves who quickly learned when change is sought, it is not always welcomed.
