Westobou: Film highlights ongoing civil rights struggle

Dare Not Walk Alone , an award-winning documentary on the civil rights struggle in St. Augustine, Fla., will be screened at 7 tonight at the Imperial Theatre, 745 Broad St.

The film from director and producer Jeremy Dean deals with protests against segregation in 1964 that often led to violent confrontations in the city. Events there helped lead to passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

The 83-minute documentary includes archival footage and contemporary interviews with participants, including former Atlanta mayor and U.N. ambassador Andrew Young.

The film will be shown in conjunction with the Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers. Admission costs $5, or $3 for military personnel and students. Tickets are available at the box office only. Learn more at imperialtheatre.com.
