Documentary screening — Passage at St. Augustine: The 1964 Black Lives Matter Movement That Transformed America
March 7 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Wellesley College will host filmmaker Clennon L. King at the screening of his civil rights documentary about the bloodiest campaign of the entire Movement, and that led directly to the passage of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964, outlawing Jim Crow segregation from coast to coast. King will introduce Passage at St. Augustine: The 1964 Black Lives Matter Movement That Transformed America™ Wednesday, March 7, 2018 at 4 p.m. at Wellesley College’s Davis Museum, Collins Cinema, 106 Central Street, Wellesley, MA 02481. The screening will be followed King hosting an audience Q&A and discussion on race and history in America. Joining King for audience dialogue will be St. Augustine Civil Rights veteran and Roxbury resident Mimi Jones, whose photo circled the globe as a segregationist motel owner poured muriatic acid in his whites-only pool while Jones and others were attempting to desegregate it.
