Description

At a two-day forum at the Thurgood Marshall Center, Joan Browning, a Freedom Rider who grew up in Georgia, 64, and Reginald Green, who was preparing for the ministry at Virginia Union before he joined the Freedom Riders, 68, gathered with two other local Freedom Riders to share their experience with elementary school students. They encouraged the young people to feel proud of their heritage and enthusiastic about their responsibility to contribute to society. Steven Nero coordinated the reunion and produced the documentary with help from a D.C. Humanities Council grant and the African American Civil War Foundation.
