Freedom has a price

When 18 year old Katherine found out about the battle for african American rights she had to help. Katherine was white, which was uncommon for a Freedom Rider. Katherine had to help the african americans, but she knew there was a price to pay for going against president Kennedy's laws.

     Today I have made up my mind, I am to join the protest against the law. I will go on my first Freedom Ride May 4th. I know I might die, but its worth freedom. My mother thinks I am crazy but she is proud of me. Not many 19 year old white girls will become a freedom rider but I am on that will take a stand against the law. I can't write much now not much happened today but I will write tomorrow. The day before I take my stand.
