“learn how 21 young people helped change our nation's history”
“If not us, then who? If not now, then when? ...Will someone else's children have to risk their lives instead of us risking ours?” Freedom Rider John Lewis, May 1961 Learn how 21 young people helped change our nation’s history using nonviolent protest. Black and white, male and female, none of them were older than 22. They stepped off of a bus at this station on May 20, 1961. They knew they might be met with violence, and they were. They had written out wills and said goodbye to loved ones. Their goal was to help end racial segregation in public transportation and they did. This new museum explores a compelling American story. It uses artworks as well as quotes, photographs and architectural elements.
