Tallahassee, FL - This year marks the 20th anniversary of African American History being included in education at all grade levels in Florida. Then-governor Lawton Chiles signed that mandate. Local, state, and city leaders were all at FAMU for tonight's celebration. And as one organizer reflects, African American history is for everyone.
"We should really commemorate and celebrate this law because number 1, it goes a long way in to diversifying the curriculum and to make sure that all students, Black White, Hispanic, that all students feel good about themselves and that they recognize the contributions of one another to society."
Tonight's celebration comes just two days before the start of Black History Month.
