"Dare Not Walk Alone"

Published Robbie - Mon, 01/20/2014 - 4:40pm

“Dare Not Walk Alone” tells the gritty, hidden story of the civil rights struggle in St. Augustine, FL.

The textbook versions of the civil rights struggle show the marches of Dr. King and people singing songs of freedom. They don’t show the tremendous price these marchers paid through beatings and arrests and the backlash their communities faced.

“Dare Not Walk Alone” shows what the people who participated in the movement faced through historical footage and firsthand accounts. The film shows black women being arrested for going to a white church, black youths being attacked for bathing on a “white beach”, white students cattle-prodded by white police for supporting the cause of racial equality, a white church holding a service of apology to the black community and more. This is the true history of the civil rights movement. (darenotwalkalone.com)
