#3 The Creation of the Freedom Rides (James Farmer's Reflections). 1987. 30min. (captioned)
In these video segments, James Farmer explains the creation and development of the Freedom Rides, which strove to enforce the Supreme Court cases, Irene Morgan v. Commonwealth of Virginia (1946) and Boynton v. Virginia (1960) that desegregated interstate transportation. He noted that this was the beginning of the nationalization of the Civil Rights Movement, as previously most protests had been by locals and the Freedom Ride involved people from around the nation.
