Watkins hosts 2009 NAACP Image Award Nominated Documentary In Partnership with International Black Film Festival of Nashville
February 23, 2009
Described as a powerful and important film by Orlando Weekly, Dare Not Walk Alone uncovers the untold story of the crisis in America’s Oldest City that broke a congressional stalemate and led to the signing of the Civil Right Act of 1964. With rarely seen news footage and revealing interviews, Dare Not Walk Alone tells of the St. Augustine movement that led to this historic legislation. Hailed as a civil rights film for the modern age and a triumph of independent filmmaking, Dare Not Walk Alone leaves one with a feeling of reconciliation and hope as well as a challenge to move forward. Screenings of Dare Not Walk Alone will be held in Nashville on Thursday February 26th at the Watkins College Theatre and on Friday February 27th at the Historic Palace Theater in Gallatin. Screenings will begin at 7 pm both evenings with Director Q&A to follow. Admission is $7 general admission, $5 for seniors and students with student ID. For more information, contact Jessica L.
