More than 50 years ago, Rip Patton's world changed. He started attending nonviolence workshops in Nashville — learning how to endure abuse without hitting back while sitting at lunch counters, riding buses and protesting segregation. Rip became a Freedom Rider, part of the movement that ended an era of legalized segregation in the South. Now, five decades later, how does he view his role as a «disrupter» — and the society that he helped to disrupt?

Join us for a conversation with Rip, hosted by Emily Siner and the WPLN newsroom. This interview will become an episode of our podcast Movers & Thinkers.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Recording begins at 6.
