1/27/10: Freedom Riders
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, Utah – In his latest documentary, filmmaker Stanley Nelson asks this question: Could you get on the bus? It's a look at the Freedom Riders - black and white Americans who in 1961 defied Jim Crow laws and traveled together on buses and trains in the Deep South. Many were beaten and jailed, but they were willing to take the risks in the cause of justice. Nelson's film is part of this year's Sundance Film Festival. He and Freedom Rider Jim Zwerg join us for a look at this story of courage.
