'Freedom Riders' Film Screening & Discussion

This film portrays the powerful, harrowing and inspirational story of six months in 1961 that changed America forever. More than 400 courageous Americans — old and young, black and white, men and women, Northern and Southern — risked their lives to challenge segregated facilities in the South. "Freedom Riders" shows the courage and tactical brilliance of Congressman John Lewis as one of the 13 original Freedom Riders.

Post screening discussion.

This event is part of our programming for this year's One Book, One San Diego where we will explore themes of civil rights, social justice, and discrimination.

The 2018 One Book, One San Diego selection is "March: Book One" by Congressman John Lewis, Andrew Aydin and Nate Powell.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
