The Movement

From the Collection: Civil Rights

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.
