The showing at BPL Copley was rescheduled

"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.

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

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

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