Faces of Freedom: Free People of Color of the Julee Cottage
The Julee Cottage provided a home for free people of color for over a century, but freedom looked different to each generation. The stories of the families who lived in this building expose the changing ideas about race and freedom during Pensacola’s history. This exhibit highlights the stories of the families who called this building home for nearly two centuries.
