Ain't Scared of Your Jails

Ain't Scared of Your Jails was a movie about attempting desegregation in Nashville, Tennessee. A group of black students performed various protests against segregation. One such protest was the Sit-in. They all sat down at the counters, and continued to sit even while the lunch counters were shut down.
"When they arrested the students, the second wave came and sat down." This was impressive. I was pretty surprised at how many people they had supporting their cause. I was also surprised with the amount of white students were also supporting the protests. And even when they were beat, they didn't falter, they kept fighting for what they believed in.
