"Freedom Riders - challenged the custom of segregation in 1961 after the Supreme Court outlawed segregation in interstate bus and railroad stations. Bus riders, black and white, set out from Washington; their arrival in Alabama met with violence. Mobs attacked several buses in Anniston and firebombed one. In Birmingham and Montgomery, whites beat some riders and federal marshals had to be called out to prevent attacks." - The Birmingham News
