Ain't Scared of Your Jails

Ain’t Scared of Your Jails is a remarkable documentary about how blacks and whites did not have equal rights. The Freedom Riders partook in events called “sit-ins” where they would go into a diner and try to sit at the counter and try to get service like the whites could. At first the sit-ins did not work and the blacks would get beat up or arrested, but after multiple attempts, the blacks started to get service. The mart about history that struck me the most was how bad situations actually were for the blacks. I never really paid attention in history classes so I didn’t know how bad things actually were. Thank goodness the world is not like that anymore!
