Description: "Dare Not Walk Alone" was conceived in 2003 by artist Jeremy Dean, who was then living and working in the Florida tourist town of Saint Augustine, "America's oldest city." When Dean volunteered to help restore the stained glass windows in a historically black church he learned of the events of 1964, the protests, the beatings, and the brilliant campaign of civil disobedience that led to the passage of the first civil rights act. While Dean felt honored working to preserve a place where Dr. King had once stood side-by-side with Jackie Robinson to rally supporters, he was stunned that he had never heard of these events before, so he set about researching them. He uncovered archive footage that had never been aired. He sat down with the people who were there, who put their lives on the line in the fight for equality and freedom from segregation.
