Martin Luther King

St. Augustine Movement

Sunday Mar 01, 1964
St. Augustine, Florida, U.S.

In March 1964, King and the SCLC joined forces with Robert Hayling's then-controversial movement in St. Augustine, Florida. Hayling's group had been affiliated with the NAACP but was forced out of the organization for advocating armed self-defense alongside nonviolent tactics. However, the pacifist SCLC accepted them.
