Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: "The Freedom Rides were a brief moment in the civil rights movement, but they captured the attention of the nation in a way that few other campaigns in the struggle had. They especially inspired southern Blacks. For several years afterward, anytime a southern Black encountered a civil rights worker, he or she was likely to ask, "Are you one of [the] Freedom Riders?" It didn’t matter if the worker was registering voters or leading a sit-in demonstration. The term "Freedom Rider" came to mean civil rights worker, especially to southern Blacks."--James Haskins

Freedom Rides: Journey to Justice is a thorough review of the monumental struggle to end segregation in public transportation in America. James Haskins’ vivid detail and moving descriptions bring to life the sacrifice and bravery of the people who tested the Supreme Court decisions that legally desegregated U.S. buses and trains. In presenting famous civil rights leaders and introducing lesser-known heroes, this volume provides a balanced and insightful discussion of what the Freedom Rides were, and why they were so important to the civil rights movement, and to the history of our nation.
