This excellent documentary about the Freedom Ride of May 1961 reminds us that the 60's were not all about sex,drugs and rock'n'roll. My family didn't have TV at this time, so I had never seen these images before.

I have known about the freedom riders for a long time, but really enjoyed the detailed and often first person accounts of this time in our history. I'd highly reccomend that you watch it.

A great documentary that EVERYONE should watch, especially todays youth who thinks it's OK to use the "N" word so frequently and losely. I actually gave it a 5star+ . . . More comments to come after I view this a second time.
