Alabama Stories

Freedom Riders II

Original Air Date: 1/16/2012

Up until the early 1960s, blacks traveling into 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 violent days when the movement came to Alabama and interviews witnesses and some of the riders themselves. The program also includes interviews with participants from the 2011 Student Freedom Ride, a 50th anniversary re-creation of the first bus trips.
