This book is the prison diary kept, day by day, for 40 days, by the author, as a young woman, arrested and imprisoned as a Freedom Rider. Freedom Riders were ordinary young people, both white and African-American, riding in small integrated groups, to challenge segregation – apartheid – in inter-state travel facilities in the deep South in 1961. They met violence, resistance, and incarceration.
