Freedom Riders tells the story of the hundreds of activists who challenged racial segregation in American interstate transportation from May until November 1961. The activists traveled together in small interracial groups and sat wherever they chose on buses and trains, deliberately violating Jim Crow laws in order to challenge a segregated interstate travel system.
