In 1961, Jean Thompson boarded a bus in Alabama with 11 other Freedom Riders bound for New Orleans–and history. Within three months, over 300 other riders took up the mission to desegregate buses. Mobs assaulted many. Others were arrested, shining a light on a brutal, segregated South. Breach of Peace is one-man play based on true accounts of participants of the Freedom Rides. Mike Willey stars in this living monument to the remarkable young men and women of various races, religions and backgrounds who rose to face the dangers of fighting for just and equal treatment for all.
