Washing Away History: Digging for the FutureWebinar
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.

This virtual panel event, second in a two-part series, 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.

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

This virtual event is brought to you by the George A. Smathers Libraries at the University of Florida and the Lincolnville Museum and Cultural Center. This event is part of the Resilience: Black History in St. Augustine collaborative project.
