Freedom Riders on PBS
Has anyone else watched the documentary about the freedom riders on PBS? I thought it was interesting to compare those freedom riders to the Soulforce equality riders. While the equality riders do face arrest at times the freedom riders endured one of the worst prisons in the south. The equality riders are free to travel on the state highways while the freedom riders often were not. I'm not trying to disparage what the equality riders do. I'm sure there are plenty of frightening moments for the equality riders. It just struck me that it is less dangerous for the equality riders in part because of what the freedom riders did back in the sixties.
