Prep is currently hosting the national traveling exhibition Freedom Riders, which looks at six months in 1961 when more than 400 courageous Americans – old and young, black and white, men and women, Northern and Southern – risked their lives to challenge segregated facilities in the South. The display will remain in the Moriarty Science Center lobby through January 28, then move to the library until Feburary 5. Alumni and parents are invited to view the exhibit during a reception on January 31.
