“Journey” tells the little known true story of the first African Americans to reach the new world - not as slaves but as free men. They were engineers, farmers, and interpreters that helped the Spanish establish St. Augustine.

Establishing a settlement that would later become the first destination for those using the underground railroad, Fort Mose was a garrison community made up of “free blacks” - the first of its kind in the country.

What happened over the next 400 years to the people of Fort Mose, and later Lincolnville and St. Augustine, would culminate in a violent crescendo that pushed the stalled Civil Rights Bill into law.

This is the “Journey”.
