In 1947 the Congress of Racial Equality & local citizens, black & white, protested bus segregation. Setting out from Washington, D.C. "freedom riders" tested compliance with a U.S. Supreme Court ruling barring segregation on interstate buses. On April 13, riders arrived at the local bus station then twenty yards W. A mob attacked one rider. Four others were arrested and sentenced to 30 days on chain gangs.
