Helen Singleton

Freedom Rider

Special Guest Speaker

Friday, March 8, 2013 at 10:30am

A rare opportunity to meet a leader in the Civil Rights Movement. 

In 1961 despite great personal risk she became a Freedom Rider. She boarded a train in New Orleans, Louisiana. In Jackson, Mississippi she entered a “Whites Only” waiting room with a racially integrated group of UCLA students organized by her husband, Robert Singleton.

Arrested and charged with Breach of Peace, the state incarcerated them at Mississippi’s Parchman Penitentiary.

This program is one hour and is appropriate for middle school and high school students.

No charge with paid Museum admission.

Advanced registration required.

RSVP via Email.

Free underground parking.

Please be considerate of our residential neighbors and make every effort to avoid driving through single-family residential neighborhood streets.
