28 May 1961:  We successfully integrated the Montgomery Trailways station, the scene of some terrible beatings inflicted just days before on Freedom Riders (mostly Nashville students) who came down from Birmingham just days before.

In the picture, with the page number of their images in Ethridge’s “Breach of Peace” are freedom Riders, left to right:
Front row, seated: David Fankhauser (p 58-60), Allen Cason, Jr. (p 58-59), David Myers (pp 58-59, 64-65), Pauline Knight-Ofosu (pp 58-59, 62-63), Franklin Hunt (?)(pp 58-59)

Back row: standing Larry Hunter (?) (pp 58-59, 61), William Manhoey (?) (pp58-59); seated, back to camera: Albert Lee Dunn (pp 58-59)
Picture source: Wilkenson, Brenda, “The Civil Rights Movement, An Illustrated History,” p. 82.
