Freedom Riders – A Documentary

Feb 8, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Freedom Riders is a 2010 American historical documentary film, produced by Firelight Media for PBS American Experience. It is being shown in the BASC on Thursday, Feb. 8 at 6 p.m. as part of CU’s Black History Month celebration.

The film chronicles the story behind hundreds of civil rights activists called Freedom Riders that challenged racial segregation in American interstate transportation during the Civil Rights Movement. The activist traveled together in small interracial groups and sat where ever they chose on buses and trains to compel equal access to terminal restaurants and waiting rooms. They brought the ongoing practice of racial segregation in the southern United States to national attention.
