Summary In 1960, a group of civil rights activists decided to challenge segregation on interstate bosses by going on a Freedom Ride, a bus ride throughout the South to a number of segregated areas. Their persistence and commitment to nonviolence grabbed headlines, and their courage helped strike a powerful blow against racism throughout America.
