To learn more about several of the exhibits you could use you cell phone to dial a number that told of the experiences many of these riders had. The stories were told by the people who experienced them.I'd left my cell in the car but the number is 617-245-3907. Enter the number (1-9) that is next to the item you want to hear about press the # key."From May until November 1961, more than 400 black and white Americans risked their lives-many endured savage beatings and imprisonment-for simply traveling together on buses and trains as they journeyed through the Deep South. Theirs is the powerful, harrowing and ultimately inspirational story of courageous action that changed America forever." (copied from the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History flyer)
When I got home I used my cell to call the number above. Their stories were interesting and informative.
