Youth Performance Company's Artistic Director Jacie Knight: "Freedom Riders" a reminder there's more work to do for equality

Next to Rosa Parks, Ruby Bridges, Emmett Till (don’t miss Penumbra’s production The Ballad of Emmett Till), the March on Washington and all the events in Birmingham, Alabama, the Freedom Riders created a force that spanned the divisions of race. These young people fought for one common goal: equality.
