What You Need To Know

Hosted by Women's March Florida - St. Augustine Chapter, this free lecture at the Lincolnville Museum & Cultural Center beginning at 6:30 p.m. looks back to June 1964 and the Civil Rights Movement in St. Augustine. To know where we are, we must know our city's past and the impact of the movement due to the passing of the Civil Right Act of 1964, ending Jim Crow Segregation. Without St. Augustine, the act wouldn't have been passed in the escalated timeframe, and it was through the determination of a small group in St. Augustine that drove the passing. Dr. Dorothy Israel will speak about the importance of the Civil Rights Movement in St. Augustine. Bernadette Reeves from Black Heritage Tours will also speak and perform a play regarding The St. Augustine Four. Following the lecture, there will be a tour of the Lincolnville Museum & Cultural Center.
