Washing Away History: Changing Tides At Fort Mose

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.

Gracia Real de Santa Teresa de Mose, or Fort Mose, was the destination of the original Underground Railroad, running south. It was home to the first legally sanctioned free Black community in North America!

As you step onto the Freedom Trail, you enter the year 1738. You’re drawn into a dangerous world where freedom seekers flee from enslavement on English plantations, hoping to live as free men, women, and children at Fort Mose.

The Flight to Freedom event is open to the general public at no cost. Donations and Memberships are gratefully accepted.

Flight to Freedom is supported in part by a Visitor Experience grant from the St. Johns County Tourist Development Council and by a State of the Arts Grant made possible by the St. Johns Cultural Council, with invaluable assistance from Castillo de San Marcos and St. Augustine Garrison.
