Freedom Riders

Comments about PBS American Experience: Freedom Riders DVD:

Every American Should See This Video. Maybe, then Americans would wait up and realize how we treated blacks in the past and in some ways, are still treating them. White Americans do not own all the rights to America. Those rights need to be shared with ALL Americans regardless of color!

Watched the rides as covered on television when I was an adolescent. Video made me much more appreciative of what I had been experiencing.

Great documentary on Civil Rights

By kriss

from Piscataway, NJ

Comments about PBS American Experience: Freedom Riders DVD:

I bought this to complete my collection on the Civil Rights movement's history, of which I was a small part as a young teenager. The freedom rides were important in breaking the barrier of segregation in public transportation and accommodations, but of course it wasn't only college students who were involved.
Anyone who cares about freedom and equality in America should understand this history.
