Join the Drum Majors Alliance for this year’s Palm Sunday “Freedom Ride”. The Freedom Ride is a local pilgrimage that explores & exposes both historic & present injustices in the city of Winston-Salem. It is a unique time of prophetic truth-telling, prayer, singing, and protest against every force that oppresses & divides our city. A diverse crowd of about 40 will hop on a bus & travel to historic, symbolic, and strategic locations in Winston-Salem. From the Montgomery Bus Boycott to the Freedom rides of the 60's, buses were an important sight of resistance & resilience in the face of social death & suffering. Our prayer is that each stop, each turn, and each story lifted up on the bus will push the Church & people of good conscious to participate in the present struggle for freedom, beloved community, and true peace locally & abroad.
