    I was flipping channels in the motel this week and spent an hour watching this documentary of the "Freedom Riders" who boarded Greyhound and Trailways buses and traveled through the deep south challenging segregation laws.

    I was born in 1964 in the north and did not experience segregation. I would be interested in hearing from those who lived in the south during the '60s.

    If you are like me and didn't experience this time in history first hand, please watch the video.
