WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Journalist Eric Etheridge talks about his book of photographs and interviews, for which he tracked down over seventy of the Freedom Riders who were arrested and served prison time for challenging Mississippi state segregation laws in the spring and summer of 1961. Their original mug shots appear in the book alongside Etheridge's striking contemporary portraits. Three of the Freedom Riders featured in the book will take part.
