Summary
John Lewis grew up in black America, and Jim Zwerg grew up in white America. A common interest in justice created the convergent path that enabled these young men to meet as Freedom Riders on a bus journey south. These two young men, empowered by their successes in the Nashville student movement, were among those who volunteered to continue the Freedom Rides after violence in Anniston, Alabama, had left the original bus in flames with the riders injured and in retreat. Lewis and Zwerg joined the cause knowing their own fate could be equally harsh, if not worse. The historic journey they shared as Freedom Riders through the Deep South changed not only their own lives but our nation's history
