Ain't Scared of Your Jail

Chapter 3 moves from the student sit-in movement to the 1961 Freedom Ride campaign, which sought to desegregate bus terminal facilities. In doing so, it argues that the period from late 1960 through 1963 was the high-tide of the jail-no-bail protest philosophy. By exploring the treatment of imprisoned Freedom Riders, it highlights the diversity of the civil rights jail experience and how it was shaped by racial, class, and gender identities. It also continues to consider the often divisive nature of the debate over how to respond to the mass incarceration of civil rights activists.
