Storyboard Text

  • Before the freedom rides, buses were still segregated
  • To protest, white and black American's made a historic bus trip across the south in two interstate buses
  • Both bus 1 and bus 2 headed into Alabama first, where crowds of white supremacists waited
  • At the Alabama state line, white racists attacked the riders and activists like James Peck, who was beat with metal pipes to unconsciousness
  • Bus Two was firebombed, and after CORE director James Farmer acquired another bus to use, the protestors were jumped by another mob
  • After news coverage of the final attacks on the riders, President Kennedy, as well as the attorney general and the ICC, sent troops to support the riders and banned all remaining interstate facilities that are segregated
  • ALL transit facilities must be desegregated
