A profile of Peter Davis, one of the 40 student freedom riders participating in the 2011 Student Freedom Ride. "Every generation - the spirit of activism, the spirit of the more perfect union, and fighting for justice - needs to be reborn. It's not transmitted from every generation to the next one," says Peter. "Each generation needs to find inspiration to rekindle that spirit."
