Here Am I, Send Me: The Story of Jonathan Daniels
Thursday, January 16, 08:00 pm on Vermont PBS | More air times
Keene, NH native Jonathan Daniels was deeply affected by the events of the civil rights movement, and in 1963 he joined the NAACP and participated with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in the march from Selma to Montgomery. Tragically, his dedication to social justice was cut short in 1965 when he was shot to death in Hayneville, Alabama, while protecting the life of a young African American woman. Many believe that Daniels' death and the subsequent trial of his killer led to the passage of the 1968 Federal Jury Selection Act. Narrated by Sam Waterson and featuring an interview with Congressman John Lewis. A film by Lawrence Benaquist & William Sullivan of Keene, NH. (Duration: 0:57)

A film by Joey Fishman. (Duration: 09:50)
