Ain't Scared of Your Jails
What I found to be interesting about the video Ain't Scared of Your Jails is the tactics that were used to protest in a non-violent way. One tactic that was used was to sit in restaurants and public places integrated when these places had been segregated in the past. A protestor reflected upon this experience and the way they conducted themselves, she says they were, "dressed like they were going to church." The groups planned everything down to what they wore. This shows that the protestors were very serious, deliberate, and professional when they protested. They set an example for all future non-violent protestors with the attitude and manor in which to protest effectively.
