Included on this page are twelve individuals who were arrested when members of the Interfaith Freedom Riders and their supporters (the so-called "Tallahassee Ten") attempted to be served at the segregated Savarin restaurant at the Tallahassee Airport. Nine of these individuals later served short prison sentences for their involvement in the affair, following a lengthy appeals process. Priscilla Stephens (later Kruize), a FAMU student and civil rights organizer, was also arrested for resisting arrest and appears on the register.
