PBS’s American Experience partnered with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History to create a traveling exhibit that tells the story of the 1961 Freedom Rides. A detailed narrative of the Rides is illustrated with vivid archival photos and newspaper clippings that document this pivotal event in the Civil Rights Movement. Companion audio allows visitors to hear the poignant eyewitness accounts of the Riders who endured bitter racism and savage beatings, but ultimately changed America forever.
