Published November 20, 2015, issue of November 19, 2015.

Massachusetts College of Art and Design presented its inaugural fall 2015 Adderley Lecture on November 10 featuring Emmy-nominated filmmaker, journalist and author Clennon L. King and a screening of King’s documentary film “Passage at St. Augustine,” detailing the violent 1964 civil rights conflict in St. Augustine, Fla., that leveraged passage of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964. Following the screening, journalist Callie Crossley moderated a panel discussion that included civil rights leaders and eye-witnesses to the St. Augustine campaign, including: Ted Mascott (left), a former WGBH radio reporter who was arrested, charged with inciting a riot and jailed during the St. Augustine Movement; Mimi Jones, a Roxbury native and civil rights foot soldier who was on the front lines; Rabbi Israel “Si” Dresner (right), one of the 16 rabbis who were jailed in the St. Augustine Movement; and Brock Satter, organizer for the Boston-based Mass Action Against Police Brutality in Boston.
