Fifty years after the arrest of five Freedom Riders attempting to integrate interstate bus terminal facilities in Little Rock, a symposium featured the members of the Arkansas Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee ("Arsnick") who led sit-in demonstrations at segregated local business in downtown Little Rock during the 1960s. John Kirk moderated as a panel of activists told their stories. The panelists also responded to questions from members of the audience.

“From Sit-Ins to Freedom Rides: Little Rock, 1960-1962” was the first panel of the symposium, “Sit-Ins, Freedom Rides, and Beyond: Direct Action and Civil Rights in 1960s Arkansas,” which was held at the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center in downtown Little Rock. close
