King before the film, and afterwards moderate a post-screening discussionn on race and history. In addition to King, joining Hunter-Gault for the conversation and Q&A will be St. Augustine (FL) Civil Rights veteran Mimi Jones, and Julia Burgess, daughter of the late St. Augustine Civil Rights veteran Esther Burgess.
