Nashville, Tennessee, May 16, 1961
The Nashville Student Movement, lead by Diane Nash, decides to send "fresh troops" of Freedom Riders to continue the cause. Students from Fisk University, Tennessee State University and the American Baptist Theological Seminary board buses to Birmingham, Alabama. The Nashville Student Movement will supply many waves of Freedom Riders in the weeks to come.
