Breach of Peace (Freedom Riders)

I'm excited to find out about Breach of Peace, a new book and website by author author Eric Etheridge about the 1961 Mississippi Freedom Riders.
a photo-history told in images old and new. The book features new portraits of 80 Riders and the mug shots of all 328 Riders arrested in Jackson that year, along with excerpts of interviews with the featured Riders.

Eric Etheridge, now living in NYC, grew up in Mississippi and is a former editor at
Rolling Stone, The New York Observer and Harper's.
