From Clarkesville Online:

At 7 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 19 in Clement Auditorium, a documentary, titled “Dare Not Walk Alone,” will be shown, with a panel discussion to follow. The film discusses how the citizen reaction in St. Augustine, Florida, to the demonstration may have contributed to the signing into law the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Panelists will include Dr. C. Alvin Hughes, professor of history at APSU, and Jimmie Garland, president of the Clarksville-Montgomery County Branch of the NAACP. A reception also will be held in the WNDAACC.
