They were black and white, young and old, men and women. In the spring and summer of 1961, they put their lives on the line, riding buses throughout the American South to challenge segregation in interstate transport. Their story--one of the most celebrated episodes of the civil rights movement--is movingly told by acclaimed historian Raymond Arsenault in this newly revised edition of his classic Freedom Riders.
