How the Freedom Rides Were Born (And What They Mean)
Among several of the contributions to the Civil Rights Movement, the Freedom Rides proved to be one of the most significant. After the Freedom Rides and the Journey of Reconciliation adopted the Civil Rights Movement nationally, several different events occurred in various places such as the situation in Little Rock, the bus boycott in Montgomery, and other protests against executions. As such, the so-called Freedom Riders were able to advocate their cause in different places while also linking communities. This further fuelled the continuous crisis regarding civil rights. Furthermore, these issues shifted the attention of the nation to the bankruptcy claims of Southern politicians.
