Fort Mose will launch a Black history trail to educate visitors about slaves’ “flight to freedom” to St. Augustine centuries ago. The fort was the first legally sanctioned free Black settlement in what would become the United States. Today, it’s a state-managed park with a nature trail. Fort Mose Historical Society officials host the annual Flight to Freedom event, though it has been postponed due to the pandemic, to share the site’s history with the public. During the event, re-enactors stand in the trail and portray characters such a slave on the run, a slave catcher, a priest and a Native American.
