Freedom Riders chronicles the inspirational story of American civil rights activists' fight against racial segregation on buses and trains over six months in 1961, deliberately violating Jim Crow laws in order to test and challenge a segregated interstate travel system. The documentary film is based on Raymond Arsenault's book Freedom Riders: 1961 and the Struggle for Racial Justice.
