American Experience | The Movement: A Short Film from Freedom Riders | PBS

Duration: 04:07
Program: Freedom Riders: American Experience #2311

The Freedom Riders represented a cross-section of America - black and white, young and old, religious and secular. "The Freedom Rides were trying to say to America: we are a diverse country - let's act like a diverse country, where every part of the diversity is equal, and is treated equally," says Freedom Rider Rabbi Israel Dresner.
