About Freedom Riders

This YPC Original is back in commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the Freedom Summer Project! In the summer of 1964, a group of mostly white college students from the North headed to the Deep South to help register new voters; not fully aware of the hate and violence that they, and the families they were hoping to help, would face. Travel back on this poignant and eye-opening journey to witness the power of unity, resilience, and the unwavering fight for civil rights, and to meet the brave students who earned their place in history as… the Freedom Riders. Written by Jacie Knight Music by Kymani Kahlil and Matt Koskenmaki
