When the Freedom Riders were being attacked in Anniston 60 years ago, one man could have stopped the violence with a stand of conscience and courage.
Former Alabama Gov. John Patterson instead stood silently and defiantly as crowds attacked the buses passing through the state. The Freedom Riders — civil rights activists testing a Supreme Court ruling that outlawed segregation in interstate travel — were beaten severely by White mobs. They had no local police protection.
