Jimmy Allen Ruth, the Trailways bus driver for the 1961 group of Nashville Freedom Riders, has died. He was 83. The Freedom Rides Movement of 1961 started in Washington, D.C. by 13 men and women who traveled to the South by bus and train to force desegregation of interstate transportation facilities. The intent of the rides was to grab the attention of the Kennedy administration during its first year.
