Civil Rights

Saturday morning at 8:00am on The Local Take on WCLK I spoke with Hank Thomas, one of the original 13 Freedom Riders from 1961. Hank Thomas and the other Freedom Riders rode Greyhound and Trailways interstate buses through the South to protest the non-enforcement of  federal integration laws.  They were beaten, threatened and arrested along the way. Th0mas was also one of the founders of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). 

Check out the trailer for “MARSHALL” starring “Black Panther” actor Chadwick Boseman along with Sterling K. Brown and Josh Gad. The film opens in theaters this weekend and is directed by Reginald Hudlin.
