Goofs

Some footage used about 40 minutes into the movie show Alabama State Trooper/Highway Patrol cars that clearly post-date the Spring/Summer 1961 Freedom Riders movement. One of the cars is a 1962 Plymouth and the other is a 1963 Chevrolet. The scene is used in context of the Freedom Riders arriving in Montgomery but apparently came from a later, unrelated incident.
