"For me, the most important lesson
[of the Freedom Movement] is that by respecting the fact that fellow activists could passionately disagree over strategy and tactics—yet remain allies—they strengthened SNCC and the Movement as a whole."

In the spring and summer of 1961, hundreds of Americans – blacks and whites, men and women converged on Jackson, Mississippi, to challenge state segregation laws. The Freedom Riders, as they came to be known, were determined to put an end to segregation and discrimination through civil action. Be there for a Freedom Riders reunion panel and and a tour of the “Breach of Peace” photo exhibition in JCCSF’s Katz Snyder Gallery.
