  • In 2005, St. Augustine's first black public high school was re-invented as Excelsior Museum and Cultural Center. The historic doors open today onto displays of the city's African-American heritage: when runaway slaves from Carolina built Fort Mose, America's first free black town; when the Civil War freed American slaves; when Black Code laws allowed unjustified arrest and re-enslavement; when black entrepreneurs created a thriving black business district; when black students learned in black-only schools and went on to achieve great things; when black and white activists fought the terrorism of the Ku Klux Klan; when Martin Luther King made St. Augustine the final straw in America's civil rights movement. Excelsior Museum is a place for people to see St. Augustine through the eyes of the town's foremost African-American community. Learn More about Excelsior Museum and Cultural Center
