Freedom Rides Museum/ Historic Montgomery Greyhound Bus Station

On May 20, 1961, an integrated group of 21 young college students from Nashville arrived at the historic Montgomery Greyhound Bus Station. These Freedom Riders met mob violence with non-violence and courage. Their actions helped end racial segregation in all interstate transportation. The Freedom Rides continue to evoke the power of nonviolent protest to change unjust laws. An award-winning exhibit on the building's exterior traces the Freedom Riders history. It uses the words and images of Freedom Riders, those who supported them, and those who opposed them. Interior exhibits add additional information on the Freedom Riders and the way in which buildings were designed for racial segregation. Share Your Story, an interactive video exhibit, will capture and show thoughts and feelings from riders, witnesses, and museum visitors. This historic site is operated by the Alabama Historical Commission - http://ahc.alabama.gov/
