1962 – The New Orleans Citizens’ Council offered a free one-way ride for blacks to move to northern states.

Reverse Freedom Rides were attempts in 1962 by segregationists in the Southern United States to send African Americans from southern cities to mostly northern, and some western, cities by bus.[1][2] They were given free one-way bus tickets and were promised guaranteed high-paying jobs and free housing. Those promises were intended to lure African Americans in. In reality, there was no guaranteed free housing or jobs waiting for them. Some of those arriving were able to find work; most could not.[3]

People need to hear see and witness this ugly part of American History so it never ever happens again!

The first Reverse Freedom Riders were the Boyd family were sent from New Orleans to New York City. Lewis and Dorothy Boyd arrived at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York City after a forty-three-hour ride with their eight children.

There was no job waiting for them, but the media was. With each ride sent, the Citizens’ Council would tip off the press to ensure media coverage.

The Boyds were chosen as the first family as they knew the media would be particularly attracted to them and Singelmann viewed them as high priority to remove from the state, since they already had eight children, were expecting one more and Lewis Boyd had been unemployed for three years.[10][1][3][8]Source: wiki

If you find any errors, please let me know. The topic above has slim to no real information available and this was very disappointing. This was a true wtf moment in History… We cannot go back to these times

wiki has quite a few articles on the 1962 attempt. It is up to the reader to decide which ones are accurate
