The Civil Rights Freedom Rides w/ David Dennis Jr; Plus, Letters From The Inside

We start today’s show with our ongoing segment: Letters From The Inside, featuring words from a prisoner at San Quentin State Prison, mailed to this show to be read on air.

Then, we dive into the legacy of the Freedom Rides with David Dennis Jr, son of legendary civil rights activist and organizer David Dennis Sr. Together, they’ve collaborated on a book called The Movement Made Us – looking not only at the life of David Dennis Sr, chronicling everything from his first freedom ride to his first meeting with Dr Martin Luther King Jr, to the birth of Freedom Summer, but also the mental, emotional, and spiritual impact of those times on Dennis Sr and his family. David Dennis Jr is a freelance writer, educator, editor, social commentator, and visiting professor of journalism at Morehouse College.
