"Born into slavery just before the Civil War, Augustine Tolton later escaped from servitude, only to face the same rejection and hate in the free North that he'd sought to escape in the South. He was even initially denied in his desire to become a Catholic priest, but persevered to faithfully serve God's people - white as well as black.
Produced by WGEM-TV in Fr. Tolton's adopted hometown of Quincy, Illinois, ""Past the Boundary"" is the improbable story of a former slave who, through faith and hope, overcame the prejudice of his time to become this country's first African American priest."
