"Passage at St. Augustine" Film Screening/Talk


In March 1964, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. auditioned a relatively unknown civil rights activist, dispatching him to Florida to help spearhead what would become 'the bloodiest campaign of the Movement.' So adept at stirring and converting the masses into nonviolent agents of change, Reverend Hosea Williams made St. Augustine pivotal in King's push to pass the landmark Civil Rights Act of '64. Experience the real-life drama of this transformative 18-month campaign where Hosea Williams played no small role. Come celebrate Black History Month and Rev. Williams with the National Park Service. Come see the award-winning documentary 'Passage at St. Augustine' with filmmaker Clennon L. King.
