The Freedom Riders: Australian and American Civil Rights

Rights and Freedoms

The USA Civil Rights Movement ‘Freedom Rides’ used civil disobedience to great effect. They also influenced the Freedom Ride in Australia which involved Sydney University students going by bus through rural NSW and challenging segregation in businesses and communities. This programme explores the Freedom Ride as part of a wider push by Aboriginal Australians to engage in activism and social reform across the nation.
