[EXHIBIT] Weathering the Storm: Political Cartoons from the Early 20th Century

September 14 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The St. Augustine Historical Society is hosting a new exhibit, opening on September 14, 2024 and running through January 12, 2025. Weathering the Storm: Political Cartoons from the Early 20th Century, is designed to expose Floridians to political cartoons printed in newspapers from a century’s past and the impact they had on Florida’s voting issues and voting rights. The exhibit will accompany lectures through the 2024 election season as a part of, From Territorial Fights to Civil Rights: Enfranchisement in the Oldest City. The series will address free and fair voting from a historical perspective, providing a unique look at long standing struggles as a whole within the community and nation. By virtue of more than 450 years of existence, St. Augustine’s history tells one of the most detailed stories of ever-changing enfranchisement in the nation.

Opening night is free on September 14, 2024. Parking is available and free at the Oldest House Museum Complex. Admission to the Oldest House Museum Complex after September 14, 2024 is $12.95. St. Johns County residents receive a 50% discount. Senior, military, teacher and student discounts are also available. Funding for this program is provided through Community Project Grant from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with the St. Augustine Historical Society.
