This film follows the historic movement begun by the Freedom Riders, a group of civil rights activists who launched a series of interstate bus trips into the deep South. Their purpose was to defeat segregation, and on numerous occasions they were brutally attacked. They eventually challenged the federal government's inaction to reverse decades of segregation and provide equality for all. Please note this title contains potentially offensive language.
