A Members-Only Event: Florida's Underground Railroad

Join us on Thursday, April 11 at 6 PM as we welcome Special Guest Derek Hankerson for a screening of Florida Crossroads – Florida’s Underground Railroad: Southern Route to Freedom

From Florida Crossroads: Centuries before a secret network was formed to help slaves escape to Northern states and Canada, The Underground Railroad ran South. As early as 1587, Spain’s La Florida was recorded to be a safe haven for freedom seekers resisting enslavement. In this Florida Crossroads, we remember those Southern Routes to Freedom and the unique group of African descendants called Gullah Geechee who are still fighting to preserve their identity in America today.

Admission is free for members. Please let us know if you need special accommodations. Please RSVP to Jennifer at 904-829-0745 ext. 220 or email jthompson@staugustinelighthouse.org
