"We have sent our children to almost every camp under the sun, and this is by far the best fit for our children. We can't wait to send out children back to camp and our children can't wait to go!"

- Mike R. and Family.

The Road to Freedom

Saturday, January 10th, 7pm at the Chandler Center for the Arts

In the 1960’s non-violent activists were recruited to ride Greyhound busses into the segregated South, and by peacefully entering the opposite waiting room/rest room (i.e. colored or white), they tried to change the Jim Crow laws.  These brave pioneers were called Freedom Riders and we are fortunate to welcome Carol Ruth Silver and Claude Liggins, two of the original Freedom Riders, to be interviewed by Dr. Craig Gilbert on Saturday, January 10th, 7pm at the Chandler Center for the Arts.
