"Passage at St. Augustine" Film Showings and Discussion, led by
filmmaker Clennon L. King, and Civil Rights veteran Mimi Jones (at the
Boston Public Library).

"Passage at St. Augustine" establishes America's Oldest City as home to
the most violent Civil Rights campaign of the entire Movement. Viewers
are transported back to this unlikely Florida tourist town to hear
first-hand from civil rights foot soldiers, Klansmen, journalists,
clergy, politicians and the like, who fought on the front lines of the
18-month battle that led directly to the passage of the landmark Civil
Rights Act of 1964. Despite MLK and LBJ headlining the film's real-life
cast, most come away asking why a campaign so pivotal appears to have
been wiped from the hard drive of History.


"Passage at St. Augustine" Film Showings and Discussion, led by 
filmmaker Clennon L. King, and Civil Rights veteran Mimi Jones.

Thursday, February 2, 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. at the Grove Hall Branch.

Thursday February 9, 6 – 8 p.m. at the Central Library in Copley Square. 
State Representative Byron Rushing will be part of the event's discussion.

Saturday, February 18, 2:30 – 4:00 p.m. at the Mattapan Branch.

Thursday, April 6,  6:00 – 7:30 p.m.at the Dudley Branch.
