Through the Darkness

Through the use of interpretive vignettes, exhibits and conversation, visitors learned about some of the major historical figures and events that have defined the African experience in St. Augustine while exploring the Castillo de San Marcos by candlelight.

The attendees where taken from the present St Augustine, to 450 years into the past of African-American history in this area. From Martin Luther King Jr.to the slaves that came south from British colonies in the north to find their freedom in Spanish Florida, the event was a treasure of history and self discovery as a collective of cultures and races.
