60 Years Since the Freedom Riders. What Has Changed?
This week marks the 60th anniversary of the Freedom Riders, who fought to desegregate the South. At 18, Charles Person became the group's youngest member, traveling from Washington to New Orleans in 1961. In his new memoir, “Buses Are a Comin,’” he details the bravery of these men and women who were instrumental in the battle for civil rights. Michel Martin speaks with Person about his experience.
