A picture is a picture, but a picture of words speaks for itself. Read it, then buy bottled water for Georgians and join me at the polls in 2022. #FreedomRides #OperationPollGreet #PresidentBidenProclamationMay42021 https://t.co/vMwzIql00x

Among the many civil rights heroes who joined the #FreedomRides was 13-year old, Hezekiah Watkins of Jacksonville, MS. Check out this thread. I am in awe. https://t.co/Aa2TQb3Pmn

Today, on the 60th anniversary of the first #freedomrides, we must continue to honor the sacrifices of those who came before us in the fight to end racial inequality. Our fight for justice and equality continues today and every day until real progress is made #ForThePeople. https://t.co/T1lUvwtkmi

60 years ago today, the #FreedomRides began in Washington, DC. This protest movement was organized by the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) in an effort to pressure the Federal Government to enforce its ban on segregated interstate transportation facilities. https://t.co/sTIOjtGO8S

On this day in 1961, the #FreedomRides began as a cross country fight against racial segregation and discrimination. Sixty years later, we remember their bravery and sacrifice, and commit to continuing the fight for liberty and justice for all.

The first freedom rides started 60 years ago today. Their courage began a movement. Let us continue the work so that we can say “with liberty and justice for all”, and mean it.#johnlewis #goodtrouble #freedomrides https://t.co/9KO10gmDRC
