At The River is a feature-length documentary about a certain time and place in the deep south. In the Civil Rights era of the 50’s and 60’s, most Presbyterian ministers stood on the banks of the cultural river of segregation and white supremacy and opted not to speak out. However, a few young southern Presbyterian ministers did brave those currents through their sermons, community organizing and participating in marches and protests. They faced dangerous, hate-filled consequences for these actions. At The River chronicles their lives and their decisions, as well as director Carolyn Crowder’s first-hand experience as a young white southern girl from Montgomery, Alabama.
