Oprah Winfrey has nothing but praise for the Florida school shooting survivors who have channeled angst into activism, calling them “warriors of the light” and comparing them to civil rights pioneers.

In an interview Saturday, Winfrey drew parallels between the teens and the Freedom Riders of the 1960s, who rode buses into Southern states in protest of racial segregation. Winfrey called the Parkland students’ protests for gun control “a proud moment.”

Winfrey spoke while promoting the upcoming film A Wrinkle in Time, which features her, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling.
