Event Details

In the segregated Deep South, when Klansmen and Jim Crow laws ruled, there stood a line of foot soldiers ready to sacrifice their lives for the right to vote, to enter rooms marked “White Only,” and to live with simple dignity. They were called Freedom Riders, and Thomas M. Armstrong was one of them. Join Mr. Armstrong for a compelling discussion about what it meant to be a part of that movement, the devastating personal repercussions he endured for being a champion of those rights, the sweet taste of progressive advancement in the past fifty years, and a look ahead at the work still to be done.

Presenter: 
Thomas Armstrong
