Freedom Riders Video. Learn from the sacrifices of others around the world.

Presented very clearly in this video with pictures and movies, I have never seen anyone firsthand as brave as the people shown in “Freedom Riders”. This small group of people of all ages, cultures, wealth, profession and skin colors knowingly knew what to expect: beatings, jail or even death.  A small group of less then 12 people, who were totally committed move forwards and another small group would follow and then another of students knowing what had just happened to the proceeding groups. – Now that is brave! You will see it all in this video.

A long video (1 hour 53 minutes) but if you have time watch it in the entirety or watch a little each day until you finish. I must say I did not know about this part of the American history. I am sad that I was never taught this in the American schools.

Chinese history also has many people of all cultures, who fought for truth, and that is why we need to have Chinese history taught to students in Hong Kong in its entirely and not just from the Mao revolution viewpoint as suggested by National Education. Remember we can learn from others in the past.
