Eleven students from Brigham Young University and four students from Jacksonville high school participated in a “Embracing the Freedom Rides” in Anniston last week. 

The group learned of Anniston’s place in civil rights history at the Freedom Riders National Monument on Gurnee Avenue and visited the Freedom Riders Training Institute building across the street from the monument for discussions.
