Exploration 6 movie review
I thought the movie "Ain't scared of your jail" was a very powerful and emotional movie. The movie focused mainly on how the people of Nashville used a important tactic, the non violent action remove the problem of segregation in the 1960's. The most memorable non violent direct action in Nashville was when the college student went and sat in lunch counters and never got up or reacted back even when they were getting beaten up by the white people. A good source in the film would probably be Diana Dash because she was present through all the events in the movie even when Ben West became the mayor. The best part was when the cops came to arrest the student more students came and sat in lunch counters. It shows courageous and determined they were. I think the best quote in the movie was at the end when Jim zwerg says " I am not going to stop singing you can try to take my mattress if you want". This scene in the movie was the strongest out of all because when the big muscular guy came to beat up Jim to leave the mattress but instead the big guy started to cry. This movie showed us that you can rid of bad things with non-violence.
