Seeking inspiration for a new font design in an antique store in Stillwater, Minnesota, graphic designer Carolyn Porter stumbled across some old letters and was immediately drawn to the expressive pen-and-ink handwriting. She could not read the letters—they had been written in French—but she noticed they had been signed by a man named Marcel and mailed from Berlin to France during the middle of World War II.

In the summer of 1961, riders–both black and white–boarded interstate buses to test a pair of Supreme Court rulings related to interstate travel. For their efforts, they were beaten, fire-bombed and imprisoned. Fifty-five years later, BJ Hollars retraced portions of their harrowing journey in an attempt to learn the Freedom Riders’ personal stories, as well as the lessons they learned along the way. Join Hollars for a reading and conversation from his new book, The Road South: Personal Stories of the Freedom Riders.
