The Evanston Public Library and the Evanston History Center present a screening of “Freedom Riders.” Run Time: 117 minutes. Rating: NR.
The Evanston Public Library and the Evanston History Center are collaborating on a series of events commemorating 1968 in conjunction with EHC’s exhibit, “Seasons of Change.”

This is the story of more than four hundred Americans who participated in a bold and dangerous experiment designed to awaken the conscience of a complacent nation. These self-proclaimed, ‘Freedom Riders’ challenged the mores of a racially segregated society by performing a disarmingly simple act.

This event is free and open to all with no registration required.
