Events for the week of 04/27/2014
Journey: 450 Years of the African American Experience
Date: 1/20 - 07/20   click here for website

The year 2014 is the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, an anniversary that is recognized and commemorated nationally and internationally. Journey: 450 Years of the African-American Experience showcases the important role African-Americans played in the historical and cultural development of America.
The birth of the African-American experience took place in St. Augustine. The first freed Black settlement was established here; the Emancipation Proclamation was read here; on the very streets that were laid down in 1573 by the Spanish Crown marched Civil Rights activists – nearly four centuries later – calling for the fundamental rights our country mandates.
This state-of-the-art exhibition features authentic objects, original documents, powerful photographs and interactive elements that depict the journey African-Americans experienced from our country’s beginnings until today. The exhibition anchors a citywide passport program that connects visitors, residents and students to important African-American historical sites, exhibitions and programs throughout St. Augustine and St. Johns County.
The St. Augustine 450th Commemoration partnered with local and national organizations to present the true and accurate story of African-Americans and their important cultural contributions
What: Journey: 450 Years of the African American Experience
Where: Visitor Information Center at 10 W. Castillo Dr.
When: Open daily (9 am – 5pm) from Jan. 20- July 15, 2014.
Why: The story of African-Americans mirrors the history of St. Augustine, from the clash of Old and New World cultures and the struggle for European control to the growth of colonies on the backs of slaves and the unending, centuries-long fight for freedom. St. Augustine has been part of America since its beginnings, and African-Americans have played a key role in the birth of this nation.
