Nolan to discuss Civil Rights movement

SAINT AUGUSTINE – David Nolan,  author of Fifty Feet in Paradise, a history of the development (and overdevelopment) of Florida, and of The Houses of St. Augustine,  will speak at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 4 in the Flagler Room of Flagler College, discussing “The Civil Rights Movement in St. Augustine.”

The program, free and open to the public, is presented by the St. Augustine Historical Society.

Nolan’s books grew out of his work in the 1970s on the first official survey of historic buildings in the Ancient City. He is a long time member of ACCORD, the organization which has given St. Augustine a permanently marked “Freedom Trail” of historic sites of the civil rights movement.  In 2014, ACCORD opened the first civil rights museum in the state of Florida, in the former dental office of Dr. Robert Hayling, on Bridge
