Freedom Rider

June 10 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Crossroads Theatre Company presents the World Premiere of a new American play FREEDOM RIDER, June 10 – June 26, 2022. Written by Kathleen McGhee-Anderson, Murray Horwitz, Nathan Louis Jackson, Ricardo Khan and Nikkole Salter
Conceived and Directed by Ricardo Khan.

On May 4, 1961, a group of young civil rights activists from colleges and universities across the country boarded interstate buses southbound from Washington, DC to challenge the non-enforcement of the US Supreme Court rule that segregated public buses was unconstitutional. Based on real events, this stirring play, sometimes funny and always inspiring, celebrates their journey that changed a nation forever.
