11 years before Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat in Montgomery, Irene Morgan rejected that same demand on an interstate bus in Virginia. Her case caught the attention of the NAACP’s Thurgood Marshall and went to the Supreme Court. On June 3, 1946, she won. But the southern states refused to enforce the law, leading 8 white and 8 black men to invent the “Freedom Ride.” This is their story.
