Dedication Ceremony

Presented by Lincolnville Museum and Cultural Center at Lincolnville Museum and Cultural Center, St. Augustine FL

Dedication Ceremony

Join the LMCC on June 18th to commemorate the sacrifices that local Civil Rights activists made in St. Augustine and celebrate the emancipation of enslaved peoples across America.

The Woolworth counter was the site of a sit-in protest against segregation, in which a number of young students participated and were arrested. Those arrested were offered their freedom in exchange for a promise that they would no longer participate in the movement. Four of these students, later known as the St. Augustine Four, refused to sign their rights to protest away and were sent to reform schools as punishment. The counter was recently added to the Lincolnville Museum’s exhibits and will be on view at the dedication ceremony from
