This screening and discussion of Freedom Riders is free and open to the public.
More than 400 black and white Americans risked their lives—and many endured savage beatings and imprisonment—for simply traveling together on buses and trains as they journeyed through the Deep South. Freedom Riders presents an inspirational and harrowing look at the challenge of non-violent protest.
This screening is part of Marywood's Social Change Film Series, which celebrates the power of people to make positive and lasting change in the world.
