Freedom Train Civil Rights Recording

Long before the Civil Rights Movement had a name, Buddy Green, Langston Hughes and the California Labor School Chorus produced a 78 rpm record of songs related to the Freedom Train and the American Heritage Foundation's stand against segregation aboard the Freedom Train.

That policy lead the Train to bypass Memphis and Birmingham -- but did allow it to display in Savannah and Brunswick, GA, where alternating groups of blacks and whites were allowed aboard -- 25 at a time.

As one observer noted in Savannah -- "They went in separate, but came out all mixed together".

Back to memorabilia...
