As part of an expanded Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration, Irving Parks and Recreation and Irving Arts Center will present Freedom Riders, a new play with original songs and music produced by Mad River Theater Works.

Freedom Riders demonstrates the importance of working together to affect change and specifically how non-violent protest was used to combat the cruelties of segregation. Freedom Riders, both black and white, mostly young, Americans, decided to travel together on buses that crossed state lines purposefully disregarding the hateful segregation practices that were still commonplace in so many parts of the United States.

The play, recommended for ages 9 and up, explores the valiant and courageous personalities behind one of the most critical chapters in the history of the Civil Rights movement.
