STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"What a blessing it  has been over the years to hear people share their incredible stories of participation and activism in the St. Augustine Civil Rights Movement.  Their involvement had a profound impact on their lives and many dealt with the struggle in different ways.  
 
The world has been impacted, this we know: we hope for better days to come; because not all have moved forward, not all have been benefactors of the American Dream.  The Struggle Continues!"
