Welcome to the ACCORD Freedom Trail Website
The Anniversary to Commemorate the Civil Rights Demonstrations, Inc. (BKA, The 40th ACCORD) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization envisioned in 2002, established in 2003, and incorporated in 2004.
Our Mission is "Remembering, Recognizing, and Honoring all those who risked their lives to attain civil rights for all and celebrating St. Augustine's pivotal role in the Civil Rights Act of 1964." We are excited to introduce the 31 historic civil rights markers on the ACCORD Freedom Trail Project presented by The Northrop Grumman Corporation and one by ACCORD Member, Beth Levenbach of Lansdowne, PA.
ACCORD would like to extend our gratitude to The Northrop Grumman Corporation, Beth Levenbach, The Old Town Trolley, Photographer Shirley Williams-Collins, the St. Augustine RECORD, Flowers By Shirley, St. Paul AME Church, American Legion Post 194, The First Baptist Church, and EWLI for their continued support!
Brochures for the Freedom Trail's self-guided tour are available at the St. Augustine Visitor Information Center in Downtown, St. Augustine, Florida.
As of July 2, 2014, the ACCORD Civil Rights Museum located at 79 Bridge Street, St. Augustine, Florida is now open. Please call or text (904) 347-1382 to schedule an appointment.
