SEPTEMBER 28 at 7:00 pm 

REVERSE FREEDOM RIDERS with NPR Reporter Gabrielle Emanuel. The summer of 1961 was a pivotal moment in the civil rights movement. And that is when black and white activists known as the Freedom Riders set out to integrate bus travel and challenged Jim Crow laws. But what happened a year later has largely been forgotten. That is when Southern segregationists fought back. Their victims were poor African Americans and acclaimed NPR reporter Gabrielle Emanuel of WGBH in Boston has the story of the Reverse Freedom Rides. Gabrielle started her journalism career as a Kroc Fellow at NPR. She then went on to cover education for NPR before coming to WGBH. Since coming to WGBH, Gabrielle has reported on everything from controversial real estate developments to sea turtles stranded by changing water temperatures. She went to Dartmouth College and attended Oxford University on a Rhodes Scholarship. 

Dessert reception to follow. $10 members; $15 nonmembers.
