Stonewall Uprising and Freedom Riders

Stonewall Uprising and Freedom Riders are two must see programs from this year’s American Experience slate. Both deal with civil rights issues in the 1960’s. Stonewall Uprising deals with a police raid on the popular gay bar, Stonewall Inn. Freedom Riders tells the story of a group of white and black Americans who traveled by bus together into the segregated south. Both stories are moving, tragic and ultimately triumphant sparking much needed social change.
