Democracy in Action - FREE Study Guide for Freedom Riders!

Facing History and Ourselves and American Experience have created a new study guide to accompany the film Freedom Riders.

Democracy in Action supports educators and student in their use of the documentary. This film tells the powerful story of the Freedom Riders taking brave and decided actions to dismantle the structures of discrimination—specifically segregated interstate bus travel—through nonviolence. The guide prompts students to consider the relationship between the political context in which the Rides took place and the stories and motivations of those who became Freedom Riders.
