Freedom Riders .
For a brief moment in time, a few daring, innovative musicians stood at the crossroads of a revolution in music and culture.
Local student LeRoy Ford will be one of forty college students participating in PBS and American Experience‘s 2011 Student Freedom Ride. From May 6-16, LeRoy and 39 other college students from across the country will join original Freedom Riders in retracing the 1961 Rides from Washington, DC to New Orleans, LA.
LeRoy Ford is currently a sophomore at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
