If We So Choose

History books tell the story of segregation. Better still, “If We So Choose” is a documentary short film, produced by Athens, Georgia native Nicole Taylor, which introduces audiences to the people in Athens who not only lived through Jim Crow separatism but fought against it and won. Through the lens of a little known protest demonstration at the lingo laden fast food restaurant, The Varsity, new light is shed on the tall order for equality that was placed by unsung, young, African American heroes.
