Watch the full episode. See more American Experience.

Get on the bus with the Freedom Riders tonight, and be amazed.

Check your local television listings for American Experience on PBS tonight (Monday, May 16).

See what risks college kids (including this one) took, before drugs and binge drinking were cool.  See what people were willing to lay down their lives for. See the consequences of hateful rhetoric in graphic (real) footage of almost unbelievable violence put upon young people committed to turning the other cheek.  

Be angry. Be sad. Be amazed at how far we’ve come and how far we have to go.  But, be there.
