An Unusual Time of Transformation
A time like few others, when forces converged on a world that would never be the same again. When people face times of tumultuous transformation, they often seek solace and comfort in safe havens, sanctuaries to protect themselves and their loved ones from the stormy world around them.
So it was. Desegregation, a war in Southeast Asia, a growing group of idealistic young people, technological marvels and new threats abroad and domestic swirled together to usher in a season of change such has never been seen before. People sought refuge in their own safe places.
7 Sanctuaries will introduce you to characters like George Roberts, the businessman, Rev. Stephen Phillips, the ‘Radical Preach”, Rob, a student and his mother, Katie as they experience the 60s from the perspectives of their own sanctuaries. They will be joined by the gentle giant stoner, Dave and his flowerchild girlfriend, Missy, Mayor El Rawlings and Larry Watson who sported the first Afro in Springlake, Florida. Their lives intertwine through the decade and come together in one night of fear, tragedy and hope.
Some sanctuaries stood the test of time.
Others did not.
"A well-told tale about a time we cannot afford to forget."
