American Experience

The Movement: A Short Film from Freedom Riders

Clip: Season 23 Episode 11 | 4m 8s

The Freedom Riders represented a cross-section of America - black and white, young and old, religious and secular. "The Freedom Rides were trying to say to America: we are a diverse country - let's act like a diverse country, where every part of the diversity is equal, and is treated equally," says Freedom Rider Rabbi Israel Dresner.
