Crossroads Commemorates the 60th Anniversary of the Freedom Rides

Special Programming

Crossroads Theatre Company is pleased to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the Freedom Rides during the Month of May. Follow Crossroads daily social media blog post beginning May 14th that will follow the journey of the first buses heading south. This will be more than a chronology of events, Crossroads will share the amazing stories of these brave young men and women who forged their way on a perilous path to justice. You'll also learn more about a few of the participants and organizers, including activist and co-founder of SNCC (Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee), Diane Nash. As part of recognizing this rich legacy, Crossroads presents a FREE screening of the documentary Good Trouble in honor of the late Congressman, and former Freedom Rider, John R. Lewis on May 17th.

Crossroads is honored to provide a closer look into this pivotal time in American history. Follow the Freedom Rides on Facebook and Instagram at Crossroads Theatre Company and on Twitter.
