Freedom Riders Traveling Exhibit

This event occurs in the past, April 20
1 Guest St, Brighton, MA   (view map)

Ray Arsenault’s Freedom Riders: 1961 and the Struggle for Racial Justice (Oxford) tells the moving — and harrowing — story of the riders during six months in 1961 that would ultimately change the fabric of America. The Freedom Riders Traveling Exhibit at WGBH today combines compelling photographs, newspaper clippings, and first-hand audio accounts to tell the story of the riders’ dangerous fight for equality. Arsenault will be on hand to sign copies of his book, and Freedom Rider Bernard Lafayette Jr. will give a first-person account of that tumultuous time in our history.

Open house, book signing, and Q&A session with Bernard Lafayette Jr. and Ray Arsenault
