Freedom Rider Diary: Discussion and Book Signing

October 9, 2014

Meet author and long-time Guild member, Carol Ruth Silver, as she discusses her book, Freedom Rider Diary, Smuggled Notes from Parchman Prison.

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.
