Buses Are a Comin’” provides a front-row view of the struggle to belong in America, as Charles Person, the youngest of the original Freedom Riders, accompanies his colleagues off the bus, into the station, into the mob, and into history to help defeat segregation’s violent grip on African American lives. He'll discuss what it was like and what still needs to be done with Andra Gillespie, the director of the James Weldon Johnson Institute for the Study of Race and Difference.
