Passage at St. Augustine

March 13, 7:00 PM

Free

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 firsthand 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.

Sponsored by the Center for the Arts and Humanities.
