Clennon L. King, Civil Rights Veteran Mimi Jones who is featured in the 
film.

*

*Long before there was a Black Lives Matter Movement in places like 
Cleveland, Ferguson and Baltimore, there were black activists in the 
tourist town of St. Augustine, Florida.
*

*
*

*The award-winning documentary Passage at St. Augustine tells their 
story, and establishes St. Augustine as the most violent Civil Rights 
campaign of the entire Movement. Viewers enter a time machine and are 
transported to the 'Nation's Oldest City' to hear first-hand from those 
who fought the 18-month battle that led directly to the passage of the 
landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964.
*

*
*

*With brief introductory remarks, documentary filmmaker Clennon L. King 
segues into facilitating a larger conversation on race and history in 
America, rounding out the program with a spirited question and answer 
session with Civil Rights veteran Mimi Jones, featured in the film.
