Assistant professor Mark Huelsbeck will present his film “Unfinished Journey” at a free screening on Feb. 21 at the Excelsior Museum in St. Augustine to honor Black History Month.
The film records St. Augustine’s acknowledgment of its conflicted past through special events conducted during the summer of 2011 and organized by The City of St. Augustine, The St. Augustine Foot Soldiers Remembrance Project and the St. Augustine 40th Accord. The efforts of activist Andrew Young, the foot soldiers, and beach protestors are chronicled to acknowledge history and foster reconciliation.
Barbara Vickers, president of the Foot Soldiers Remembrance Project, also appears in the movie and will be at the Feb. 21 screening for discussion.
Huelsbeck earned an M.F.A. from The University of Iowa with a focus on film and video production and has a B.A. in Religious Studies from The University of Iowa.
The Excelsior Museum is located at 102 Martin Luther King Ave. in St. Augustine. For more info, call 904-819-6421.
