      Breach of Peace: Portraits of the 1961 Freedom Riders

      The Freedom Rides Museum is pleased to host Eric Etheridge, author of "Breach of Peace: Portraits of the 1961 Mississippi Freedom Riders (Expanded Edition)" along with Freedom Rider Catherine Burks-Brooks.

      Burks-Brooks was a 22 year old college student from Birmingham when she joined the Freedom Rides in May of 1961. She was one of the nonviolent student activists attacked at the Montgomery Greyhound Bus Station on May 20, 1961, and one of the hundreds later arrested in Jackson, MS.

      Burks-Brooks is featured on the cover of the newly-released expanded edition of Etheridge's book, "Breach of Peace: Portraits of the 1961 Mississippi Freedom Riders." The book combines history, photography, and journalism to share the story of the Freedom Rides and the hundreds who participated to bring about integration of interstate public travel in the United States. This is a spectacular opportunity to come face-to-face with history and learn about how we document, remember, and share these stories.
