An extremely realistic portrayal of this most significant chapter in our nation's history the film movingly illustrates the power of moral authority in the hands and hearts of ordinary people to prevail against the KKK and racist elected officials. Freedom Riders dispels the prevailing myth that northern (white) students went on a mission to the south to combat segregation and instead makes clear that the leadership lay with the local African American residents who risked their lives to help bring justice to our land.
Please join us for an inspiring afternoon as we watch this important documentary, have lunch together and discuss the film and its implications for our anti-racism work.
