Movers & Thinkers: After Getting Arrested On The Freedom Rides, 'We Didn't Stop Singing'

Jan 30, 2018

Rip Patton was arrested in 1961. That's when he and a group of other college students drove from Nashville to Alabama to join the Freedom Rides, where they boarded Greyhound busses and attempted to use white-only lunch counters and bathrooms throughout the South.

Rip remembers this experience as one of his most meaningful, and he talked in our live series Movers & Thinkers about the lessons he took from it.
