WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Freedom Riders: The Civil Rights Musical tells the true story of activists who boldly challenged the legality and optics of the Jim Crow South by riding buses in mixed groups. It features Civil Rights icons Diane Nash, John Seigenthaler, John Lewis, Congress of Racial Equality's original 13 riders, and other fearless activists of the Civil Rights Movement. Freedom Riders is a soaring portrait of the fearless voices of the Movement who used nonviolent direct action to initiate change.
