St Augustine was one of the leading battlefields of the Civil Rights movement of the 60’s. It was the only place in the state of Florida where Dr. Martin Luther King was arrested and demonstrations led directly to the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Your visit to explore St. Augustine history would be incomplete without knowledge of the rich African American Heritage that changed our Nation’s history and inspired the world.
Put your walking shoes and join in for this Free St. Augustine Tour every Saturday from 4pm – 5:30 pm.
