Platinum Live – Mike Wiley: Breach of Peace On May 24, 1961, 19-year-old Jean Thompson boarded a Trailways bus in Montgomery, Alabama with 11 other young Freedom Riders bound for New Orleans – and history. Within three months, approximately 300 other riders took up the mantle to desegregate busses, following the path of the first brave few. Actor and playwright Mike Wiley stars in this one-man play that is a living monument to those remarkable men and women who faced violence and arrest in their courageous fight for just and equal treatment for all.
