Ain't Scared of your Jails was a powerful and moving film. I learned a lot more about the students movements during the civil rights years. One that stood out to me the most was the freedom riders. I couldn't image the thoughts and emotions they were all going through. There was a scene with a white male from the secondgroup of the freedom riders named Jim Zwerg.
The photo is the scene when
he's in a hospital after he was injured from being the first person to walk off the bus. He said at one point, " we're dedicated to this, we'll take the hitting, we'll take the beating. we're willing to accept death." I thought this was an important part of the film because it showed how brave these freedom riders were. Also, the fact that Jim Zwerg was a white male and this shocked everyone and the focus was more on him when he was the first off that bus. I think this had an impact on others, like Fredrick Leonard in the film said "He had a lot of nerve. And i think that's what saved me." I really enjoyed this film, it was powerful and just shows how far we have come.
