The Dr. Bowie Scholarship Foundation has partnered with the Northeast Partnership for Economic Development, a coalition of 12 Northeast cities and their Mayors, to host a week of events honoring 7+ original Mississippi Freedom Riders. These brave men and women paved the way for such opportunities, such as our nation’s 1st black President, Barack Obama and 1st female presidential candidate, Hilary Clinton, in their very successful, non-violent efforts to end segregation in interstate transportation across the south.
