Directed by Jeremy Dean, Dare Not Walk Alone successfully avoids the trappings of many well-meaning civil rights docs that serve chiefly as grief mops for white liberal guilt.

Dean's ability to explore history through such a local nexus creates a uniquely intimate document.

Brock's story and the vivid remembrances of protesters...Clumsier is Dean's attempt to revive calls for social justice regarding today's poverty-stricken West St. Augustine.

It's nothing short of breathtaking to see these demonstrations, and the clear and unmitigated cruelty incurred by these activists, from the points of view of general passersby.

Even though this production was completed in 2006, the racial politics of the current presidential election make his film all the more significant.

Inelegantly made and sometimes awkward in its transitions between the two eras, Dean's film nonetheless packs a punch, thanks to vivid archival footage from this lesser-known (compared to Montgomery, Selma, Birmingham) hotbed of Southern racial unrest.

Jeremy Dean makes a valiant attempt to juxtapose past and present, but his goal is consistently undermined by an execution so muddled it's almost unwatchable...Even so, the film deserves to be seen, if only for its wealth of rare historical footage.
