The Moment

Get Inspired with Freedom Rider Charles Person

In fall 2023, Charles Person, the youngest of the 13 original Freedom Riders, generously opened his home for a conversation with Learning for Justice. We are honored to share with you a video excerpt from that conversation wherein Person recounts parts of his story, imparts wisdom and offers suggestions for ways people can engage in justice movements.

This conversation is the first in a series of interviews with veterans of the Civil Rights Movement.
