“The Freedom Riders,” the first in a series of programs by the New Brunswick African American Heritage Committee, chronicles the long and sometimes violent effort to achieve the rights enumerated in the Declaration of Independence — life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness — for all Americans.
The New Brunswick African American Heritage Committee will offer this screening and a discussion forum led by Dr. Clement Price, distinguished professor of African American History at Rutgers University, along with other panel members. The audience is encouraged to discuss the film and the history of the civil rights movement both locally and nationally.
