Washing Away History: Changing Tides At Fort Mose

July 1, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm


More than 250 years ago, Fort Mose in St. Augustine, Florida, became the first legally sanctioned free Black town in the present-day United States. Now a Historic State Park, it is a critically significant site for Black American history.

Registration is free, but required: ufl.to/climateftmose

This virtual panel event, first in a two-part series, will discuss the historical and cultural significance of Fort Mose, as well as the ways in which its interpretation and advocacy have impacted the site over time.

Panelists for this event are:
+ Dr. Jane Landers, Gertrude Conaway Vanderbilt Professor of History, Vanderbilt University
+ Dr. Jane Mahoney, Executive Director, Fort Mose Historical Society
+ Darcie MacMahon, Director of Exhibits and Public Programs, University of Florida’s Florida Museum of Natural History
+ James Bullock, local St. Augustine interpreter and actor

This virtual event is brought to you by the George A. Smathers Libraries at the University of Florida, the Lincolnville Museum and Cultural Center, and Florida Museum of Natural History. This event is part of the Resilience: Black Heritage in St. Augustine collaborative project.
