In May 1960, two legendary civil rights lawyers closed ranks to rescue a black NJ man sitting on Georgia's death row for a crime he didn't commit. Now, 60 years after Albany Atty. C.B. King and Atlanta Atty. Donald L. Hollowell did what many thought was impossible, the State of Georgia has reopened the case to find out who was really responsible for the child rape and murder that almost cost a man his life. This Black History Month, come celebrate these two lions of the law who gave their lives to protect the rights of black people in Georgia. Please attend a free screening of the documentary "Fair Game: Surviving A 1960 Ga Lynching" with documentary filmmaker Clennon L. King at the Southwest Branch Library, 3665 Cascade Road, SW, Atlanta, GA 30331.

In March 1964, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. auditioned a relatively unknown civil rights activist, dispatching him to Florida to spearhead for SCLC what would become 'the bloodiest campaign of the Movement.' So adept at stirring and converting the masses into nonviolent change agents, Reverend Hosea Williams made St. Augustine pivotal in King's push to pass the landmark Civil Rights Act of '64. Experience the real-life drama of this transformative 18-month campaign where Rev. Williams masterfully marshaled civil rights foot soldiers before taking the lead at Selma. Join the National Park Service in marking Black History Month and come celebrate the work of Rev. Williams crystalized in the award-winning documentary film 'Passage at St. Augustine' to be screened with filmmaker Clennon L. King. The screening is free and open to the public.
In December 2010, a young Tunisian set himself on fire to protest injustice, touching off a revolutionary fever that swept the region. The Arab Spring, as it became known, seemed to augur the arrival of a democratic era. But while its reverberations are still being felt in Algeria and Sudan, only Tunisia can boast of new democratic institutions. The Carter Center has worked there since 2011, implementing democracy-strengthening projects and observing the transition, including this fall’s planned elections. Why did the Arab Spring work in Tunisia when it was not as successful elsewhere? Come hear about the challenges facing Tunisia and what the Center is doing to bolster democracy and human rights.
