This epic series explores how World War I changed America and the world.

In 1961 segregation seemed to have an overwhelming grip on American society. Many states violently enforced the policy, while the federal government remained indifferent. That is, until an integrated band of college students decided, en masse, to risk everything and buy a ticket on a Greyhound bus bound for the Deep South. With access to influential figures on both sides of the issue, this program highlights what can result from the incredible combination of personal conviction and the courage to organise against all odds.
