Local historian, professor and author Arsenault tells the story of a band of civil rights activists who risked their lives by daring to defy the laws of Jim Crow in the Deep South in 1961. They made up America’s first interracial and inter-religious mass movement, and they resisted segregation in bus and train facilities. Because of their efforts, the signs "whites only" and "colored only" were taken down forever. Arsenault speaks on the civil rights heroes and signs copies of his books, Freedom Riders and The Sound of Freedom.
