    Today marks the 50th anniversary of the Freedom Rides, a political/civil rights movement initiated by the Freedom Riders, a collection of black and white citizens in 1961. The goal of the Freedom Riders was to test the recent Civil Rights-related Supreme Court decisions which lifted stipulations on where and how African Americans could travel in the South, but which many Southern cities did not adhere to. The actions of the Freedom Riders led to a number of violent, racially-charged outbreaks, riots, and arrests, and ultimately provided powerful motivation for the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960’s. To celebrate their heroic actions, we’ve assembled a gallery of Freedom Rider Mugshots from the Freedom Rides of 1961. And yes, all of the Freedom Riders were hipsters.
