ST. LOUIS – A bus caravan of union workers will stop in St. Louis Wednesday. They’re traveling across the country on the 60th anniversary of the 1961 Freedom Rides.

They’ll be in Washington DC this weekend in support of the Voting Rights Act and the Black Votes Matter movement.

The original Freedom Riders were civil rights activists who battled segregation on public buses in the south.
