The Magnificent Drama: Martin Luther King in St. Augustine

Southeast Branch Library 6670 US-1, St. Augustine, Florida

The civil rights movement in St. Augustine drew national attention when Martin Luther King, Jr. visited twice in 1964, sparking marches, arrests, and clashes between protesters and police on the tourist-lined beaches. Local and national objectives complemented and contradicted each other in ways that affect race relations today and are examined in this presentation. There is no registration for the event, and free parking is available in the library's lot.
