The Magnificent Drama: Martin Luther King in St. Augustine
Delve into Florida Black History for Black History Month as Dr. J. Michael Butler presents a fascinating program about the civil rights movement in St. Augustine that 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 of St. Augustine. Local and national objectives complemented and contradicted each other in ways that affect race relations today. Free; registration required. The Zoom ID will be emailed to you with your registration confirmation. This event will be presented virtually on Zoom. You are welcome to watch via Zoom on your own device, or you can join a live audience at the Library where the Zoom event will be streamed in the auditorium. This program is a partnership between Florida Humanities and the Delray Beach Public Library.
Funding for this program was provided by Florida Humanities and sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
