Counter Histories: Rock Hill

  USA | 60 mins. | Documentary Feature

Directed by: Fr3deR1ck  

Nine young black men exercise their power to change history. It’s 1961 and the Civil Rights movement is stalled with protests, arrests, bailouts and then a return to life as usual in the segregated South. Students at a small Baptist College in Rock Hill, SC decide to sit in at their local lunch counter, get arrested, go to jail and stay there. It’s a test case that brings national attention to the movement and changes strategy. A little-known story in a well-chronicled history, Counter Histories: Rock Hill breaks with documentary conventions to connect with a new audience and tie the historical movement to present day struggles.
