St. Augustine’s Significant Role in Black History
Celebratory and Educational Events All Month.

By Ama Reynolds

As the old adage goes, those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it. Thankfully, St. Augustine’s filled with knowledgeable historians--those who pore over old books and newspaper articles and official documents--and those who have lived the history themselves.
