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.
