Forty years ago last month, a small group of civil rights workers left New
York City on a Greyhound bus, headed for New Orleans, to desegregate
public accommodations. Outside of Anniston, tragedy struck the riders as
they were attacked and beaten and the bus burned by an angry mob. Now the
"Freedom Riders" have once again boarded a bus to make the trip to the
South and commemorate their part in the historic civil rights movement.
