Created Equal Film Screening: "Freedom Riders"

Created Equal Film Screening: "Freedom Riders"

The Freedom Riders of 1961 were a pivotal moment in the long Civil Rights struggle that redefined America. From veteran filmmaker Stanley Nelson, this documentary film offers an inside look at the brave band of activists who risked everything to challenge segregation in the Deep South.

This film, the last of four documentaries, is part of the grant-funded "Created Equal: America's Civil Rights Struggle" series of film screenings, lectures and discussion forums which continues through March 29.

This series is made possible through a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, as part of its Bridging Cultures Initiative, in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.
