What did you think of the Freedom Riders webcast?

I have to admit—this was the first webcast I've ever seen! I've been in plenty of online presentation, but broadcasting a live discussion was very different. I particularly liked the way that students from schools around the country were broadcast while they were asking questions of the panel.

 

I came away with two quotes, both from Diane Nash (I'm not sure they are word-for-word):

 

Reflecting on the feelings she had after taking individual action:

You have a source of power you won't discover until you take responsibility.

 

Demanding that people take more civi responsibility than just voting:

Act like you are a ruler of your country.

 

Describe some other memorable moments, or share your thoughts!
