NxtUp...Making a Difference
The Freedom Riders
Helen & Robert Singleton were married in 1955 in California.
In 1961 they traveled to the Jackson, MS train station to sit
in the whites-only waiting room.
The mug shots were taken 45 years ago this July.
Robert & Helen served prison time for their actions. Today Helen is an artist and retired arts administrator, Robert is a professor of economics.
