 "Passage at St. Augustine" establishes America's Oldest City as the most violent Civil Rights campaign of the movement. Viewers are transported back to the unlikely Florida city to hear first-hand from civil rights foot soldiers, Klansmen, clergy, journalists, 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. And 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.
 Filmmaker Clennon L. King uses his civil rights documentary around this little-known historic event to have a constructive, candid conversation about race. Click here to view the movie trailer. In the racially charged climate this country finds itself, King delivers brief introductory remarks to his film, before seguing afterwards into a larger conversation, rounding out the program with a thoughtful question and answer session. Institutions both large and small have found his two-hour presentation enlightening, timely and engaging to all generations.
