Dare Not Walk Alone to Screen at Milwaukee International Film Festival

Greetings Wisconsin!

Dare Not Walk Alone will be playing at the Milwaukee International Film Festival on Saturday, Septepmber 29th 7:45pm.

We really appreciate the chance to share this film with you, and we really like the festival's description of the film: "Jeremy Dean’s fearlessly honest and socially prescient documentary reveals the untold history of the civil rights movement in St. Augustine, Fla., and the ongoing conflict in the city. Martin Luther King Jr.’s fight for equality led to a battle to integrate a local motel, culminating in a horrific incident in which the motel’s owner poured acid on protesters. More than 40 years later, a group of African-American teenagers in St. Augustine dream of a better life, trying to survive troubled homes, failing schools and a justice system that is stacked against them. Dare Not Walk Alone attempts to bridge the gap between the ideals of the civil rights era and the contemporary struggles of the hip-hop generation."

We will be working to alert all our friends and relatives in the Milwaukee area about the film. Remember, the more people turn out to see the film, the more people will eventually have a chance to see the film!
