1961 arrest photo for Gloria Bouknight as Freedom Rider

Description

This is the 1961 arrest photo for CORE member Gloria Bouknight as a Freedom Rider in Jackson, Mississippi. Originally from the South, she lived in New York after the rides and was roommates with Sheila Michaels. She served as chair of the membership committee in the Harlem chapter of CORE and was one of the Freedom Singers.

Considered one of the 'missing freedom riders', she was recently interviewed by Dr. Sonnee Weedn for her book, Many Blessings

My thanks to Dr. Weedn for helping me get in touch with Ms. Bouknight.
