Hosted by Women's March Florida - St. Augustine Chapter, enjoy a 1.5-hour private tour of St. Augustine where more than 400 years of African American history lives. Come walk with us through the historical sites that were significant to the Civil Rights Movement of St. Augustine while learning about the brave and courageous African American citizens. Explore approximately 10 different stops where you will hear stories and see the places that great leaders walked and stood up for dignity, equality and human rights. Learn about the many Freedom Fighters who risked their lives here in the pursuit of freedom for all people. As a highlight, you will stop at the Civil Rights Museum. You will see history come alive as you follow the footsteps left by Civil Rights leaders such as Dr. Martin Luther King and Andrew Young. You will learn of Martin Luther King's visit to St. Augustine as well as see the site of the famous Woolworth's demonstration. Established at the end of the Civil War, Lincolnville is now on the National Register of Historic Places. A visit to St. Augustine would be incomplete without exploring the rich African American heritage that changed our nation's history and inspired the world. The tour begins at 4 p.m. at Tour Saint Augustine. The cost is $11; youth ages 6 and under are free.
