This week marks the start of the 50th anniversary of the civil rights "Freedom Riders", who traveled by bus to confront segregation in the South.  On a recent show, Oprah Winfrey honored 178 original Freedom Riders and retold personal stories and memories from some of them.

PBS will air a documentary on the Freedom Riders on May 16. I won't miss it and neither should you.
