The voting rights bus tour kicked off June 19 in Jackson, Mississippi, where many Freedom Riders were arrested 60 years ago when they got off the bus there. The tour, which also included stops in Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, West Virginia and Tennessee, aimed to travel the reverse route of the 1961 Freedom Rides. On the side of the bus are the words: “Freedom Ride, The Fight Continues,” “Power” and “Love” along with the images of the original Freedom Riders, a group of white and Black activists that included college students and middle-aged Americans.

This week’s eight-day trip came during a week of action involving voting rights.
