Black History Month

The Florida Department of Education is putting on an exhibit for African American history.

On the 17th floor there's a quiz wheel of facts and there's a musical lyric sheet to the song "Lift every voice and sing.” There are works of art depicting black heritage and computer terminals where you can review black history pages.

"What we wanted to share at the Department of Education is the historical significance of African Americans throughout the course of the development of education in Florida along with that we also wanted to focus in on the 50th anniversary of brown versus board of education,” said Fred Mattingly, Deputy Director of the Florida Department of Education.

Volunteers are also handing out visitor guides, which include important court cases like Brown versus Board of Education, and Plessy vs. Ferguson.
