Washing Away History is a two-part virtual panel series on Fort Mose’s past, present, and future. The second panel, Washing Away History: Changing Tides at Fort Mose, is Thursday, July 22, 2021 at 5:30pm via Zoom.

The discussion will explore past and present archaeological discoveries at the park and how environmental factors, in particular sea level rise, affect our future understanding of the past at Fort Mose and around the city of St. Augustine.

More than 250 years ago, Fort Mose 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.

Panelists for this event are:

+ Dr. Kathleen Deagan — Distinguished Research Curator of Archaeology and Adjunct Professor of Anthropology, University of Florida’s Florida Museum of Natural History
+ Dr. Lori Lee — Associate Professor of Humanities, Flagler College
+ Sarah Miller — Regional Director, Florida Public Archaeology Network
+ Thomas Jackson — Board of Directors, Fort Mose Historical Society

Brought to you by George A. Smathers Libraries at the University of Florida and Lincolnville Museum and Cultural Center, in partnership with Florida Museum of Natural History.

This event is part of the Resilience: Black Heritage in St. Augustine collaborative project
