Brought tears to my eyes
23 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a really powerful documentary, showing a side of the nation's oldest city that has been hidden to its millions of tourist visitors for decades. But there was a time, back in 1964, when St. Augustine, Florida was on the center of the world's stage for a great moral drama showing what was wrong with racial segregation--how it discriminated against blacks, and dehumanized whites. The result was the passage of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964, which outlawed segregated motels and restaurants, and also job discrimination (and not just for blacks but for women). St. Augustine is an historic city, but it was distinctly uncomfortable with being a place where history was actually made. Kudos to Jeremy Dean and his crew for showing what happened then and what has happened (and not happened) since. This is a continuing moral drama that should have wide appeal among good-hearted people everywhere. It is like "Eyes on the Prize" viewed from the other end of the telescope: zeroing in on one community, and turning over many rocks to see what's hidden underneath.
