Age 5
Civil rights activists known as The Freedom Riders rode buses into segregated southern states to ensure the Supreme Court’s ruling that segregated public buses were unconstitutional was being upheld. The first Freedom Ride left from Washington D.C. on May 4, 1961, and traveled to New Orleans. One bus arrived in Birmingham on May 14 and was met by a white mob. The mob attacked the bus, slashed the tires, broke the windows, and threw a bomb onto the bus. The Freedom Riders barely escaped the flames. The Freedom Riders continued on and encountered segregation and violence and brought national attention to disregard of federal laws in the South.

Name Meaning

English: habitational name from places in Lancashire and Sussex. The former seems from the present-day distribution of the surname to be the major source, and is named from Old English scingel ‘shingle(s)’ + tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’; the latter gets its name from Old English sengel ‘burnt clearing’ + tūn.
