Audrey Hamilton and JoeAnne Ulmer talked about being part of the “St. Augustine Four.” In July 1963, 23 people were arrested after a sit-in at a local Woolworth’s lunch counter. Ms. Hamilton and Ms. Ulmer and two male teenagers were not released for over four weeks because they refused to promise to stop demonstrating. After going to jail, they were sent to reform school for 52 days.

This interview was part of an oral history project on the Civil Rights Movement of the mid-20th century initiated by Congress in 2009, conducted by the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, the Library of Congress, and the Southern Oral History Program at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. The interview was conducted at the Hilton St. Augustine Historic Bayfront Hotel by Joseph Mosnier.
