ACCORD Civil Rights Museum & Freedom Trail of St. Augustine
The non-profit grass roots organization founded in 2003, ACCORD, celebrates the 40th anniversary of the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
St. Augustine was one of the leading battlefields of the civil rights movement of the 1960s and was the only place in Florida where Dr. Martin Luther King was arrested. The demonstrations in St. Augustine led directly to the passage of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964 - one of the two great legislative accomplishments of the movement.
The ACCORD Freedom Trail Project, and the cell phone audio tour, consists of 31 historic markers located at various sites significant to the St. Augustine Civil Rights Movement. Guests can pick up a Freedom Trail Brochure and Map at the Visitors Information Center —next to the Castillo de San Marcos Fort —that includes all of the historic markers on the self-guided trail.
