The first Freedom Ride began on May 4, 1961,

when seven black and six white riders left Washington, DC on two public buses bound 
for the Deep South. They intended to test whether the southern states would enforce the 
Supreme Court’s ruling that declared segregation in interstate bus and rail stations unconstitutional.

The initial ride led to countless other Americans joining the Civil Rights movement.

Join Us in Welcoming 4 Freedom Riders...

Joan Browning  
was a student at Georgia State College for Women, but was asked to leave in 1961 because she attended a black church. At the age of nineteen, she rode the Central Georgia Railroad as part of a Freedom Ride from Atlanta to Albany, Georgia on December 10, 1961. When she arrived in Albany, she was arrested immediately. Thirty years after she completed her B.A. degree at a historically black school, West State College.

Dion Diamond 
was in the second freedom ride. One of the first Freedom Ride buses was burnt down in Anniston, Georgia. He was in the Greyhound bus which arrived in Jackson shortly after another bus carrying another group of Freedom Riders showed up. They were arrested as soon as the bus arrived in Jackson and were sent to the Mississippi State Prison. As a Howard University student in 1960, he became involved with the Non-Violent Action Group in Washington D.C. to break Jim Crow in the suburbs.

Reginald Green
Reverend Reginald Green was a student preparing for the ministry at Virginia Union University. In 1961, he joined other Freedom Riders and took a bus down to a heavily segregated town in the south, Jackson, Mississippi. For his actions, Reginald Green and his fellow Freedom Riders were all arrested upon arrival. After that he served for more than 40 years as a pastor of Walker Memorial Baptist Church in Washington D.C.

Lula White
“I was twenty-two. I had finished a year of work. I would not say I was “daring,” but I was greatly moved by the Montgomery bus boycott. It happened in my senior year in high school at [James] Hillhouse [in New Haven.] My father, my brother, my sister and I went down to Woolsey Hall to a rally in December of ’55. It was a rally to support the Montgomery bus boycott, and I was just thrilled that people could see by taking united action that they could win. I mean, it took a year to win—by the time the boycott ended, I was in my freshman year of college—so I was thrilled that people could do something in a group, something they couldn’t do all by themselves.”
