    Name: Film & Discussion Series: Freedom Riders
    Date: October 29, 2019
    Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    Freedom Riders is the powerful, harrowing, and ultimately inspirational story of six months in 1961 that changed America forever. From May until November 1961, more than 400 black and white Americans risked their lives simply traveling together on buses and trains through the Deep South. Deliberately violating Jim Crow laws, the Freedom Riders met with bitter racism and mob violence along the way, sorely testing their belief in nonviolent activism. The discussion will include what lessons this history has for us in today's situation with racism in the United States.
