Les voyageurs de la liberté ont ouvert la route à Obama

leMonde2 Freedom Riders

Freedom Rider Frank Holloway appears on the cover of the January 18 issue of Le Monde2, the Parisian paper’s Sunday magazine. Le Monde reporter Nicolas Bourcier traveled through the south recently and talked to Riders Holloway, Hezekiah Watkins, Catherine Burks-Brooks, Margaret Leonard and Dave Dennis for their thoughts on Barack Obama’s victory and imminent inauguration.

Bourcier’s article will be available online for about a week, in two parts: an introduction and the interviews.

For those who (like me) don’t read French, Yahoo’s Babel Fish will give you the gist of what Bourcier wrote and the Riders said.
