Freedom Riders were ordinary people, mostly young, who challenged the system of segregation - apartheid - which had existed in the US South for almost a hundred years. The Freedom Riders boarded commercial buses, riding in small, integrated groups, to challenge segregation in inter-state facilities in the deep South. They met violence, resistance, and incarceration. Carol Ruth Silver is a civil rights attorney and since 2002, has been working to promote education for girls in Afghanistan.
